||CleanBeta Cell #020: Georgi Goldman||Georgi Goldman, a documentary and television producer, talks about camps, knishes, and what happens if you're certified to scuba dive, but afraid the dive shop won't let you go because you have type 1 diabetes. She had a great time diving off a small island in the Philippines, but a terrible time in a hospital on that same small island.||10/19/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanBeta Cell #019: Anastasia Brien||When you think of genes, you usually think of parents passing things down to their children. But what would happen if it went the other direction?

||CleanBeta Cell #018: Cassidy Robinson||In the summer 2017, the non-profit Beyond Type 1 put together a team of 20 people with type 1 diabetes from around to world to bike from New York to San Francisco over 10 weeks in an effort to raise money and, more importantly, awareness for what it means to live with type 1. This is the beginning of a series where I interview members of Team Bike Beyond to figure out what compelled them to sign up for this team and how the journey has changed them since. This first episode is with Cassidy, who has spent her whole life listening to her father tell stories from when he biked across the country when he was 22 years old. Now she has her own to share too.

||CleanThe 3s #001: A Day in the Life of Craig||Most of the dialogue about type 1 diabetes is between people who have it, but what about those close to us who are affected by T1D too, the endearingly nicknamed “Type 3s?” In the third show from Beta Cell, The 3s offers the opportunity for them to join the conversation too in one-on-one interviews with the T1D in their life. In this episode, Craig (T1D) interviews his friend Venus after she wore a Dexcom for 20 days about the surprising, and not so surprising, things she learned along the way.

||Clean#016: Jasmine Fouts||As a kid, Jasmine hid the fact that she had T1D. She wasn't ashamed or afraid of being judged but was doing it so that other people wouldn't worry about her. She acted like she didn't have T1D so that her friends and family wouldn't be burdened by her disease too. Her management suffered because of this until college, when she had to show three months of good control in order to get approved for an insulin pump. While she's maintained good control since then, she's rebuilt the trust between her and her family from all those years of lying about her blood sugars.||4/30/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||Clean#015: Deanna Paolantonio||After being diagnosed with T1D at 25 years old, Deanna had to figure out how to make it fit into her life of dance and fitness. She talks about finding a nurse who won’t hold her back, telling her coworkers about her T1D, and competing in a Tough Mudder race just months after diagnosis. Teaching Zumba provided her an outlet for comping with T1D, which informed her PhD research: she studies how dance can assist young girls with body image and self-esteem issues.||11/12/2017||Free||View in iTunes|

After several weeks of starving herself, going on fast walks several times a day, and taking drugs that left her in excruciating pain in order to keep her blood sugars somewhat under control, she suspected that she probably had type 1 diabetes instead.

||Clean#008: Libby Russell||Libby Russell was diagnosed at 17 years old in 2005. While being a teenage girl is already pretty hard, adding type 1 diabetes made it that much more complicated and she didn’t feel like any organizations were messaging to teenage girls. After a lot of drafts, 7 years later she launched her blog I Have The Sugars to empower girls with type 1 that she thinks are getting lost. Her new movement #MeFirst takes that even further by reminding all of us to put our lives first and then figure out how to fit diabetes into that plan. Find Libby at ihavethesugars.com and on social media @ihavethesugars.||6/26/2016||Free||View in iTunes|
||Clean#007: Robin Arzon||Robin Arzon is a corporate lawyer turned "Ambassador of Sweat." She is a running coach, cycling instructor, and ultra-marathoner. So it came as a shock when she was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at 32 years old. Since then she has accomplished even more than she did before she was diagnosed.||5/22/2016||Free||View in iTunes|
||Clean#006: Jim Natal||Jim Natal was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at 30 years old in 1978. 38 years later, he still struggles with maintaining the balance between controlling his diabetes and leading a fulfilling life without worrying about every high or low blood sugar. In his first book of poetry, In the Bee Trees, he shares the story of his diagnosis: Learning To Live With It Barbara taught me to give injections to an orange, thick pop of penetration through the skin, short smooth glide into soft tissue under. Slowly, with control, push down on the plunger, and quick backward dart toss, remove the syringe. I practiced in her office, still dazed from diagnosis, seeing through pinpoint pupils, eyes after a strobe flash. Stretched like surgical tubing colorless with tension, I was renamed after a disease, time now measured in gleaming needle pricks, insulin units, blood sugar levels. My wife sobbed in the car parked beneath the medical building, rusty pipes wrapped and painted white, strung along the oppressive ceiling. She cried because we didn’t have much money. For the money, not for me. In that time of change there were changes yet to come. Barbara said I would learn to manage it by myself. She said I had no choice.||4/11/2016||Free||View in iTunes|

She struggled keeping her blood sugars under control while taking drugs designed for type 2 diabetes, eventually leaving three different endocrinologists until she found one who recognized she actually had type 1 diabetes. Cindy talks about not letting the mental toll of type 1 affect her day-to-day life, her fights with insurance companies, and making the switch to Medicare at 65 years old.||2/29/2016||Free||View in iTunes|
||Clean#004: Rachel Zinman||Rachel Zinman was diagnosed with Latent Autoimmune Diabetes in Adults (LADA) at 48 years old.

||Clean#002: Amanda Bar||Amanda Bar was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes when she was just 2 years old. Like many young people with T1D, she struggled with wanting to fit in with her friends who didn’t have diabetes. A few years ago she passed out while driving and realized not feeling her low blood sugars was too dangerous to ignore and invested in a diabetic alert dog, who helped her train for the 2015 Los Angeles Marathon.||12/7/2015||Free||View in iTunes|
||Clean#001: Doris Gilbert||Doris Gilbert first learned about type 1 diabetes when her daughter Laurie was diagnosed in 1974.

Not letting that stop her, Doris signed up for nursing school at age 60, climbed Mount Whitney at 68, went dog mushing in Alaska at 70, and continues to lead an active and healthy life with T1D today.||11/4/2015||Free||View in iTunes|
