Diabetes is a grind. Instead of it grinding us, how about we grind it? If you're still reading, you'll enjoy the show's sense of humor. We bring on guests who challenge assumptions, push us to improve our diabetes management, and make us laugh in the face of this disease. We want you to run marathons. We are dispelling hot-tub fears. We dish out ideas for using diabetes to pick-up a date. We are NOT afraid of carbohydrates. If you bravely hit 'Subscribe', we thank and invite you to grow with us.

I know it all....not really
I have been a diabetic for 31 years and have felt like I know it all when it comes to diabetes and what could a Fightmaster or a Art Director teach me new. HAHA boy was I clueless. Each podcast I learn something new and it helps me reengerize and refocus my diabetes management. I love that you bothhave differnt approaches to diabetes (for example and pump and MDI) You guys are great....and your podcasts rock. I always wait anxiously for the next one!
10/10 would listen again.
I don’t even have diabetes, but after listening to this podcast, I WISH I DID! Obviously kidding, but seriously, quality work here by Amber and Ryan.
Way better than the pamphlets they gave me in the hospital
Amber and Ryan's podcast is the best. I don't usually write reviews, but this podcast is special-- I was diagnosed with T1D during my last year of college, got out of the hospital with a bag of printouts and brochures that said a lot about carb counting and sliding scales, but nothing much about reality, about the day to day. Short while after, I found this podcast, and I found a lifeline.
At a time when it was easy to be overwhelmed by the diagnosis, supplies, info, appointments (on top of all the other regular life stuff), I found support and encouragement in every episode. It's been seven months since I first started listening, and I look forward to every episode--thank you and keep up the great work!
