Customer Reviews

Informative and fun!

I’m really glad I tried this out. It’s interesting to hear a personal story about chronic illness. Ari is able to talk about serious subjects about life with his disease with a human perspective that’s informative and real. Not depressing.

Interesting and insightful

This podcast provides an "insider's view" into an often hidden aspect of some people's lives: that of chronic disease or disability. I like the interplay between the two hosts, and I like the insight and honesty provided by the storytelling. I'm looking forward to more.

Even the opening/closing music was good

Husband and wife team Ari Decherd and Larra Morris host this multipart series focusing on the rare genetic kidney disorder that Ari has had to deal with since early early childhood.

This is the sort of subject matter that you generally associate with very somber almost clinical discussion of a topic that impacts such a very small minority of the population. While the Kidneycast does provide useful information about this little known disease it's presented in a fun and entertaining way by a couple whose chemistry shines through. Their clear rapport helped draw me into a story that wouldn't have registered on my radar otherwise. While they are knowledgable about the subject, it's their practical knowledge of living through the disease that they focus on. There are some technical asides, but it never feels like they're lecturing; just sharing their story and using science to clarify the odd point. Even when they do get technical the science is very accessible.

There's very little to nitpick about this first episode. It lays out the direction of the series and introduces the listener to the charming hosts. Their story flowed smoothly, sometimes humorously, and the half hour passed before I knew it.

I don't generally have time to listen to podcasts, but I'm going to make the time to listen to future episodes. I highly recommend it.
