The Axial Spondyloarthritis Podcast

A podcast for people with Axial Spondyloarthritis. My name is Jayson Sacco, and I was diagnosed 36 years ago with Ankylosing Spondylitis. We now call this disease Axial Spondyloarthritis which encompasses both Ankylosing Spondylitis and Non-Radiographic Axial Spondyloarthritis. With this show, I want to bring the AS community together and talk with doctors, organizations, and individuals all dealing with AS.
