Two recent podcasts interviews featuring members of the Duke Department of Neurology help to shed a light on our understanding, and the future, of neurodegenerative diseases. Both are available to listen to on your desktop, phone, or however you get your podcasts.

On Connecting ALS, Rick Bedlack, MD, PhD, spoke about his ongoing research to better understand and help patients with ALS, including ALSUntangled and ALS reversals. He also discussed what treatments for ALS might look like in the future. Listen to that episode here.

As an undergraduate student, Paul McIntosh, MD, experienced back pain that turned out to be a marker of adult-onset Pompe's disease. McIntosh shared how he reacted to that diagnosis, and how he came to terms with it, for the 150th episode of BrainWaves. Listen to that episode here.
