So I made a podcast…

I’m rather proud of this one.

Hope you don’t mind me blowing my own trumpet a little bit.

With support from the ME Association, I’ve produced a series of podcasts for people with ME/CFS.

The ME Show is available now for free on iTunes – PLEASE subscribe, rate and review here.

Or you can listen online here.

In episode one I speak to Jennifer Brea who made the internationally-acclaimed documentary Unrest which charts her own ME journey.

I also hear from Robert Saunders who has reworked the classic song Blowin’ In The Wind, to dramatic effect.

In future episodes, ME medic Sr Charles Shepherd, the MP Carol Monaghan who sparked a Westminster Hall debate about the controversial Pace trial, and much more besides.

I’ll be using any and all feedback to improve it as it goes, but I hope you give it a listen, and that you like it.

  2. Really enjoyed your first show Gary. That is one of the best interviews I’ve heard with Jen Brea. You did a fantastic job of interviewing her and asking just the right questions then letting her speak. I also enjoyed the last part with Robert Saunders and his rendition of Blowin’ In The Wind, which also gives me goosebumps. Thank you so much and keep up the good work 👍😍

  3. Well done Gary for doing The M E Show. Jennifer Brea is an inspiration to us all and I admire her determination. The Blowin’ in the wind version by Robert Saunders says it all and is very moving.
    i have sent my personal story to be added to the local “millions misssing” demonstration and would urge anyone reading this to do the same if you are able because the more our stories come to light then perhaps we can at last be taken seriously and helped.

  4. Hi Gary, I have now listened to all 3 of your podcasts & I am in total awe of what you are doing! I look forward to the next Monday coming along to hear what’s next. You ask all the questions we ourselves would like to ask & wanting answers to. I’d never wish this illness on anyone but to have you as an amazing advocate, speaking out as you are, explaining how it feels, being our voice, is nothing short of inspirational. Thank you so much for all you do. No need to tell you to take them much needed rests, as reading your blogs you have this in the bag & pace yourself really well. After 10 years of trying to fight it, I have taken note & starting to apply more discipline. I don’t use social media but for the 1st time ever your podcast of the m.e show prompted me to post about it on an online cfs/me forum! I felt the need to share & spread the word, as you’ve really helped me & given me back a glimmer of hope. Thank you so so much. Keep up the good work.

  5. Hi Gary, I’m not usually one to post comments on websites but I felt I just had to say how thankful and grateful I am for your podcasts!! They have been such a tremendous comfort to me when I’ve been in that all too familiar crash state. I have listened to your interviews now multiple times over and they have really helped me to feel less isolated dealing with this awful illness. You have such a warm friendly personality that really comes across in your interviews which are always so informative! I also like how you end each one on a positive note 🙂 I can imagine that it must be very taxing on your energy to put these podcasts together! So it is very generous of you to use your limited energy to do this and your efforts are SO appreciated! I also just read your post about the push-crash cycle which I’m currently experiencing….yet again, oh why do we never learn!! Desperately searching for answers around the internet I discovered Bruce Campbell’s course for helping with pacing so I just signed up! I hope it helps, not sure if you have tried it yourself? I would be interested to hear if it has helped anyone else! Isn’t pacing so hard to do!! especially when we feel elated in those moments when we finally feel back to normal and are impatient to catch up on all the things we have been missing out on!

    Wishing you all the best for recovery!! And also hoping for more podcasts in the future 🙂
