Sometimes it seems like you need Ninja skills to defeat Lyme disease. That’s why we started Lyme Ninja Radio, to bring you the personalities behind the information. Each week we bring you interviews with interesting and informative experts who are using their unique skills and knowledge to deal with Lyme and other tick born diseases.

Along the way we started interviewing people like you, Lyme Ninjas. So much more than information is gained through a conversation as opposed to just reading blog posts or even scholarly articles. Their stories are illuminating, inspiring and comforting. Spend some time exploring this site and while you are at it, join our insiders mailing list.

Hello, my name is Mackay Rippey. I’m the voice behind Lyme Ninja Radio. I’ll never forget the Sunday morning I dragged my sorry-feeling-self to the bathroom and found a perfectly formed bullseye on my left arm. I was lucky, able to return to my acupuncture practice after only few days. It wasn’t until I started talking to other people who have suffered with Lyme for years did I realize how devastating this disease can be. That’s why I created Lyme Ninja Radio. I hope you enjoy listening to our guests as much as I enjoy speaking with them.


Aurora is the technical producer of the show and is also my eldest daughter. She has two sisters, Gabrielle, her identical twin (yes there are two of them) and Jasmine. Aurora helps keep me focused and on task. Without her, I probably would only put out one podcast a month. I could not do it without her.
