Welcome to another Twist Special, where co-hosts Rick Rose and Mark McNease devote the podcast to guests from the fields of news, arts, culture, politics and activism. This week we have blogger, author, activist and victorious game show contestant (!) Mark S. King. Mark has been writing and speaking out on behalf of people living with HIV since he tested positive in 1985, the week the antibody test became publicly available. His award-winning blog, MyFabulousDisease.com, shares his story and highlights the important work of others. Mark has rescued Ann-Margret from an angry mob, won a car on The Price is Right, and published A Place Like This, his personal chronicle about the dawn of AIDS in Los Angeles. He attributes his longevity to being an empowered patient, the love of a good man, and double chocolate brownies made from scratch.
