Overview: SCI Boot Camp is a podcast created for people living with spinal cord injuries (SCI) as a new medium for education, information sharing, learning and development, support, and community. Weekly Boot Camp broadcasts address issues across the spectrum of SCI-related subjects ranging from the science behind injuries and the rehabilitation experience to adaptive equipment and living intentionally with the injury.

At 39 years old, Ryan has been living with paralysis for more than 20 years and is a vibrant and active leader in the SCI community in southern California and across the United States.
