This week’s show is a special to coincide with Multiple Sclerosis (MS) Awareness Week.  The MS Awareness week is a chance to raise awareness of multiple sclerosis, and the reality of living with it.  This Shed Happens has an explanation of MS, interviews with two people living with MS.  The interviews are with people who have automated their home with voice activated technology to improve their quality of life. The show includes other aspects of MS, and also has news from Sheds in the area.
