This week the Muscle Owl is talking Cystic Fibrosis. It's a condition to which co-host Michaela has always felt a strong affinity, seeing similarities between CF and her own condition, Spinal Muscular Atrophy MD.

This is the first in a three part series discussion we have with special guest Andy Ward, who has Cystic Fibrosis and at 37 years old, is awaiting a lung transplant.
