S and J are the best!
This podcast is not only informational, but also enjoyable and entertaining! Samantha and John have a great chemistry and play off of each other well! The Craft Brewery Field Trip - Birdfish Brewing Co. episode was funny, yet informative. Though the MS episodes share a lot of important and useful information, they are light-hearted.
Love the authentic nature of this podcast.
Thank you for being real and telling your authentic stories. It’s awesome to hear that people are not alone and you provide such great insights into this way of life. Keep it going. Can’t wait to hear more stories!
A great podcast for those living with MS or connected to MS in some way. John and Sam cover important topics in easy to understand and “real world” language and discussions. Whether you are new to the world of MS or not this is a great resource!
