Great podcast!

So nice to learn and hear from people that understand what I’m going through. It makes me not feel so alone hearing stories I relate to.

Top notch pod and interviews

Cool podcast. I enjoy hearing the stories and hero’s journeys of all my fellow Lyme Warriors. Thank you Richard and Matt.

Superior interviewer - I’d hire you without a doubt.

Edited to add final comment.

Trust me when I tell you that I’ve consumed about everything available re: Lyme disease and co infections. Everything. I’ve listened to ( thousands?) of related podcasts but your interview style is by far the best. Everybody else can’t resist adding personal anecdotes and speaking more than they listen. Especially interviewers adore speaking about themselves... By contrast, you are an excellent communicator and do not go off track with original goal. Plus, you have an intuitive ability to ask the question we listeners would ask if we were there. My teenager ( not invested in Lyme dx at all) commented that you get to the point better than anybody he’s heard me listening to. I don’t sense that you have a political agenda ( traditional vs homeopathic med) rather you respect that everybody is different and if it’s works for you, then it works for you! My husband is a physician and respects my combined approach. TBH, pre iv infusions I was on deaths door. Now my immune system is “ picking up the charge” so less med is needed.

This may be the first review I’ve left. I want to encourage you to keep doing you. I learn things from your podcasts where as with many others , I do not. Especially enjoy how you connect with guests on social/emotional level.

May I add that perhaps the podcast ( name) font should be larger and perhaps more bold and colorful? The smallish logo contributed to this podcast not being on my radar, soon enough. Just my two cents.
