It was an honour to interview this week’s guest; Matt Sacheli. His research on the effects of exercise within Parkinson’s patients is truly inspiring. What’s really amazing in this episode is how a chance encounter with a Parkinson’s patient sparked a new passion that changed him from a jock to pursuing life-changing research.
