elena rubin and jenni prokopyHere's what fans are already saying: "Just wanted to drop you a line to let you know that I LOVED your first podcast! It was just what I needed this evening. I was able to listen to it while I rested my eyes to get rid of a migraine. One of the worst things about the headaches I get since developing fibromyalgia is the boredom of not being able to look at the computer, or read a book or watch TV when my head hurts, without making it worse. So thanks so much for the welcome distraction." - April Duritza, a total ChronicBabe!

nick markos and jenni prokopySo many thanks!

We couldn't have this awesome podcast series without the help of Elena Rubin (that's Jenni with her, up above!), our magical audio princess at Flashpoint Academy, who records Jenni and edits all our material to make it sound soooo good; Nick Markos (that's him with Jenni to the left!), aka The Hitmaker, who provided some terrific tunes; and everyone who makes the ChronicBabe podcast possible, including friends, family, and all our fellow ChronicBabes. You all rock!

Start today! Listen in, and if you have more ideas, let us know.
