#2.15: ALS (Lou Gehrig's Disease)
Show Notes

This week's episode is brought to you by Sydnee and SCIENCE (thanks, Science!) and although ALS or amyotrophic lateral sclerosis is a hard topic to discuss, we're here to tell you everything you need to know - and hopefully NOT bum you out. We're talking Stephen Hawking, drug discovery, clinical trials, and everything in between. You won't want to miss this episode! Listen until the very end to get inducted into the #AnxietySquad!
