As part of the ‘Graticast’ series, presenter Chip visited ME Research UK’s vice-chair Sue Waddle at her home for an informal interview on youTube. Sue has been involved with ME for many years, and the chat covered her family’s own experiences of the illness, the difficulties patients face, and ME Research UK’s quest to fund research.

Chip Colquhoun and friends’ weekly humorous ‘Graticasts’ aren’t specifically about ME, but the illness always gets a mention, and they aim to raise awareness of the illness by helping the general public look on the bright side of life – you can subscribe to Chip’s feeds for free.

Many thanks to the ‘Graticast’ team – as Sue says at the end of the sofa-cast, “Everyone needs a Chip”, and its true!
