Touching Lives, Making Progress, One Pod at a Time

Welcome to the Know Sweat podcast: The podcast for anyone living with a sweat disorder or concerned or curious about issues of human perspiration -- including excessive sweating or hyperhidrosis (Hh.)

Ready to listen? Scroll down and find episodes now.

We strongly believe that the more we get legitimate sweat information out into the world… the more understanding we can garner… the more we can improve the lives of those living with sweat problems. With understanding comes empathy, motivation to improve diagnosis and treatment, and a willingness to reject stereotypes of "sweaty" individuals. 

In this vein, our podcasts raise up the voices of those living with excessive sweating and their loved ones as well as the dedicated healthcare providers, scientists and advocates working to improve the understanding, diagnosis, and management of sweat issues. 

Add us to your playlist. Learn something new. Feel connection across the miles and know you’re not alone.

Don’t forget to also subscribe, rate and share our pods so more people can find us, feel supported, appreciate the diversity and impact of the sweat experience, get help, and more.

Want to be involved? Tell us  what you think and what you’d like to hear about next.

Corporations, foundations and donors are invited to discover opportunities for unrestricted educational grants. We’re planning future pods on the latest research findings related to sweating disorders, night sweating, heredity, and Frey’s syndrome and we need your help.
