On Concussion Stories, we share real post-concussion syndrome stories of hope, struggle, insight, perspective and empowerment.

Emeritus Professor Andrew Maas

My name is Melanie Wienhoven, host of the Concussion Stories podcast. Concussion Stories is all about bringing forward the real stories behind our concussions.
Insight and hope play an important role in every episode, while we hold space for the darkness that most of us know all too well.
My goal for each episode is to instill a sense of empowerment in you. To enable your recovery, you first need that 1 thing that only you have power over: the choice that you will or won’t be in the driver’s seat of your own recovery.
