Jess Brien from the ‘That’s so Chronic’ podcast sat down to talk to MS Auckland ambassador, Sam Smith, about his journey with MS. It’s a must-hear for anyone living with MS, or anyone who knows someone living with MS.

Sam talks about his life with relapsing remitting multiple sclerosis. He was diagnosed with MS in 2015 and was forced to give up a successful career as a dentist… only to have another successful back up career as a comedian. He has been a comedian and writer for TV shows such as 7 Days, Jono & Ben, The Project, Dancing With The Stars, Family Feud and Taskmaster.

Sam talks about what it’s like to quit your job after diagnosis, what it’s like to be a new dad with MS, why he’s dedicated to spreading awareness, and randomly, about the Sound of Music.

Because Sam is a comedian it is told with humour, but it also reveals the real physical and mental challenges that come with living with MS.
