George Lopez is getting brainy…
The 60-year-old Mexican American actor/comedian is among the first guests for podcast Brain & Life, which will explore the intersection of brain health and neurologic disease.
Set up by the American Academy of Neurology, the podcast will engage with neurology experts, celebrity advocates, and people whose lives are affected by neurologic conditions, including the aforementioned actors.
Lopez, who suffered from a chronic kidney condition which led to a diagnosis of uremic neuropathy, is best known for starring in his self-produced ABC sitcom.
Other guests include comedian Josh Blue and actress Marilu Heller.

“How do you keep your brain healthy? How do you best navigate everyday living after being diagnosed with a brain or nerve condition? We will tackle those questions and more in the Brain & Life podcast,” said Correa. “We hope the episodes are an enjoyable insight into the perspectives of people living with brain and nerve disorders and a resource for those interested in how to maintain healthy brain and nerves. I am flattered to help amplify the neurology community’s voice, support public health education and reduce the stigma for the one in six persons affected by neurologic conditions.”
