“But, you don’t look sick?” Is a five part podcast series where a group of influential people share their stories about their chronic health journey and ways they have ensured their condition does not define them.

In the first episode, James Fleury has a conversation with NZ food-travel show host, Nici Wickes about what life is like living with Ankylosing Spondylitis and the relationship between diet and autoimmune disease. We also learn how to make a tasty anti-inflammatory smoothie for everyone to enjoy!
