Legit good.

I appreciate this podcast as it heightens my awareness of what it means to have MS, what the experience is like, and opens my eyes/ heart to the disabled community in general. I also appreciate John’s attitude of taking on challenges, reflecting on them, and persevering. He maintains a positive attitude and continues with a vision of what is possible. Inspiring.

I’ve also ordered his hot sauce before and plan to get more when I run out as it is legit tasty! I seem to put it on most things I eat.

God Bless John Hoppin! This podcast is a life saver for those of us facing life newly disabled. I have MS as well and John is providing a beacon for us to follow and giving us a voice not only to listen but to represent us. He doesn't candy coat his situation but he always has a positive outlook on his life which for those of us struggling with chronic disease is crucial. Thanks for being brave enough to share your stories.

John should have started podcasting right when he came out his mama, because he is such a charismatic, interesting, funny, and sincere orator. What's the Matter with Me is an inspiration, because it fills you with reverence for everyday life and making the most of any situation. While finding enjoyment in absurdity. Life creates a set of unique limitations for everyone. It's the attitude that matters and making time for your passion(s) and committing to a positive attitude while still being tenderly honest about how hard it can be. John brings wit and perseverence to his life story and makes me, an avid listener and fan, want to rise to my better self because I get a dose of his podcast and think "This is how it's done."
