    A meeting with my doctor brings me new understanding. I am on immunosuppressants. I am more likely to catch Covid-19 even though I am vaccinated.

The Mercadantes ,

Wonderful.

Touching, funny, deeply honest, and organic. Highly recommend.

Joe Pepon ,

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.
