    Hope my articles may help. We’re on the same page re ME. For Nicola…your care is the best treatment available. Every bit of exertion used to get to a doctor is energy diverted from use by her immune system. and doctors do not have an effective treatment. Carefully evaluate each visit, because the exertion will have caused harm…..was there a benefit that was greater than that harm? If not…..Some even long- term patients start to improve once they have ‘given up’.

    Hi Steve

    Have just discovered your pod & wanted to say how much I enjoyed your interviews with Protege, Yellowman & Third World. Its clear you love this stuff and that your interviews with these guys are a true labour of love.

    I have one selfish request. Misty in Roots have always been my favourite band and even he newer members rarely do interviews.

    Reflecting some of these major acts ypu have recently interviewed I am sure you could bring them to the mic !

    Please please please give it a try 🙂

    Keep up the good work.
