Fabcast: Timely, Urgent, Eye-opening--the Story of Jake

By Gibbs22manila @gibbscadiz
@mgg @mcvie @gibbscadiz, thank you for that fabcast. powerful story indeed. struck a chord in me. -- from @itsMePeriod on Twitter, just one of many expressions of support and appreciation we got from listeners after the publication of the two-part podcast below featuring our special guest, Jake Manila.
Jake--to whom all the thanks, in fact, should go, for his courage, honesty and selflessness in admitting he is HIV-positive, and resolving to do his part to help raise greater awareness about the disease. How he got infected is a shocking, hearbreaking story. But how he is living with it, and what it now means to his life--and to the rest of us who might find inspiration from his example of bravery and grace under tremendous odds--deserve greater attention.
