The “I Have HIV” Podcast is dedicated to people living with HIV and their friends, and their family members. It is the first podcast of its kind that features a host that is actively and openly living with HIV, and includes guests who are doing the same, struggling to adapt, overcoming negative stigma, and so much more.
Josh Mica was diagnosed with Stage 3 HIV in 2018 with a T-Cell count of ten, feeling overwhelmed with a terminal diagnosis if left untreated, Josh Mica started to get involved with finding a way to prevent anyone else from getting this diagnosis. That same year he joined Thomas Street Health Clinic Advisory Board, where he started to get a better understanding of what it meant to be living with HIV.
