About the Host

Jason Herterich

Jason Herterich

Host and Producer

I am an engineering graduate who reinvented himself as a podcaster and chronic illness/disability advocate after developing fibromyalgia, myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME/CFS), and postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome (POTS). I am the youngest of three kids and the proud uncle of my nephew and niece. I was born and raised in Toronto, Canada where I currently live with my Mom and Dad. On occasion, I help with the dishes and do my own laundry. In my spare time, I can be found throwing grapes in the air, trying to catch them in my mouth, dropping them, dusting them off, and trying again. To learn more about me and my health journey, read \\my feature\\ on Love What Matters.
