A couple of years ago, we launched a few podcast episodes to see if they were something our community was interested in.
Note: We’ve republished them recently to bring our new community members up to speed. You can find them at the following links:
01 – Living Well with REM Sleep Behavior Disorder
02 – Growing Up with a Parent Who Has Parkinson’s
03 – How Facial Masking in Parkinson’s Influences Perception
04 – Tips for More Expressive Communication in Parkinson’s
It turns out our community was interested in audio content and since then many have asked, “When are you going to do more?”
We can finally say the answer is NOW!
Tomorrow we launch the first official season of The Parkinson’s Podcast™.
Kesley Phinney is back as our host for 10 new episodes that touch on everything from the neuroscience of Parkinson’s to diagnosis, medications, emotional health and more.
How to Listen
You can either listen to each episode directly from the episode page on our website, or you can go to iTunes or SoundCloud or wherever you listen to podcasts and listen from there. (And if you like them, please be sure to leave a review.)

We hope you’ll learn valuable information and insights from these interviews, and that you’ll put some of the ideas into action to help you live well with Parkinson’s.
