What’s The Matter With Me? Podcast

portrait of john hoppin

My name is John, I’m 42 years old, husband, father, owner of Hoppin Hot Sauce, KFJC radio DJ, podcaster and I have multiple sclerosis (MS). I made this podcast to share what I’m going through.

What’s The Matter With Me? Podcast mission statement

I created the What’s The Matter With Me? Podcast to give myself a support mechanism to deal with the pressure of having multiple sclerosis, becoming a father, and embarking on a business venture. Episodes are released weekly and run about thirty minutes.

Also this week, I continue to build stamina and regain my independence, taking some trips with the kids all by myself for the first time since July.
