A diabetes podcast worth listening to, Embracing Diabetes

You may think me biased because February 3 I was a guest on the Embracing Diabetes podcast, available on Apple and Spotify. But there’s something about a podcast on diabetes led by a woman who has lived with type 1 diabetes more than 25 years and another PWD who is also an endocrinologist. What these two women, respectively Amy Stockwell and Liz Stephens, diabetes advocates and educators, bring to the party, is exactly the Embracing Diabetes tagline — compassion, community and creativity.

Funnily enough, I’ve met both Amy and Liz in the flesh. I met Amy years ago at a Diabetes Sisters conference and felt a kinship immediately, and had dinner with Liz years and years ago in Portland, Oregon when a mutual friend, who also has type 1, brought us all together for scrumptious, Northwest healthy/hippie cuisine.

Normally, I hate listening to myself, but I actually enjoyed listening to my own podcast and others I’ve heard on the channel. I share my own history of course, stories and experiences, and wisdom about “the life” and our interaction with our health professionals. So pour a cup of tea, or lace up your sneakers, and tune in.
