    Type 1s and Nones!!! It's the finale of the finale. That's right! Part 4, the final installment of the Ask Me About My Type 1 Season 3 Finale Special the Series is here! This very special episode is the live recording of the Connected In Motion Virtual Slipstream Workshop that I did a couple months back. Here I share why I think sharing our Type 1 stories is so important along with some tips on how you can do it yourself! In addition to my TedTalk I was also lucky enough to find three Type 1 volunteers, friend of the show Jordan (S2Ep.1) and new friends Katie and Sarah, who helped me open up the conversation based on their varied experiences with that thing we call Type 1. I had a lot of fun with this and I hope it gives you some sort of insight into your Type 1 experience. Thank you all again so much for this very special season of Ask Me About My Type 1!!! See y'all for Season 4!!!

    S3Ep.14.3 More than just a post... Part 3

    Oh hi Type 1s and Nones!!! I'm back AGAIN this week and this time with Part 3 of the Ask Me About My Type 1 Season 3 Finale Special Series!!! On this very special episode Lexie, Lauren, Qiana, and Antoinette come back and share with us their thoughts on the posts that everyone in the Diabetic Online Community is talking about right now. Recent happenings on social media brought to light major issues within the Type 1 Community that quite frankly aren't new, but need to be addressed. Because while the discussions many of us in the Type 1 Community are now having may have been inspired by a post on social media, the problems they represent go much much deeper. Thank you again to Lexie, Lauren, Qiana, and Antoinette for their help with this episode.

    S3Ep.14.2 Amplifying Black Type 1 Stories Part 2

    Welcome back Type 1s and Nones!!! I knew you'd be back for Part 2 of the Ask Me About My Type 1 Season 3 Finale Special Series!!! In Part 2 I have on new friend Lauren and friend of the show Qiana Drew.  In our conversations we talk about specific struggles that are entirely unique even with the Type 1 experience. Lauren tells us about her experiences being racially discriminated against by her medical care teams which kept her managing her Type 1 the way she wanted to. Qiana comes back to speak with us about her struggles with Diabulimia at a time when the term itself didn't even exist. This one is full of tough but necessary conversations that our community should be having more. For more information on Type 1 and disordered eating please visit the resources below.

    S3Ep.13 Type 1 Moms

    This one is going out to all the Type 1 Moms. And this week Ask Me About My Type 1 means that in every sense of the phrase. Because not only do we have a Type None guest who is Mom to a Type 1 daughter, we also have our Type 1 guest who has a two year old of her own. Type 1 guest Marci tells us all about her experiences after her Type 1 pregnancy and what parenting as Type 1 has taught her. Marci's friend and our Type None guest, Lindsay, is your typical Type 1 mom who manages her daughter's Type 1 along side her husband who ALSO lives with Type 1. Strangely enough this episode became the mostly highly Type 1 concentrated I've had to date and for reasons that you'll just have to hear to believe. So be on your best behavior and don't eat Mom's low snacks because it's all about the parenting with and for Type 1 on this episode of Ask Me About My Type 1.

Inovative idea for a podcast

Walt does a fantastic job of connecting people with T1D through this podcast. Additionally, what is most unique about this podcast is that Walt strives to connect people with T1D AND people without T1D to deepen the public’s understanding of this chronic illness. I learn something new every time I listen!

Favorite podcast!

I always listen to Ask Me About My Type 1. Walt is a fantastic interviewer, he actively listens and gives his guests space to open up and tell their story. And he is so funny! I’ve had type 1 for seven years, and AMAMT1 is a huge part of my T1 care - I need to regularly hear other t1 stories so that I remember that all is well and I’m not so weird or different. Listening to Walt helps me take a deep breath, learn something, and have a laugh at my T1D. Thanks Walt! Love ya!

Love learning about everyone’s different experiences with chronic illness!

I started to listen when my friend from high school shared she was a guest on the podcast. Since then I’ve subscribed and been listening each week. It’s very interesting to learn as a type none and to hear how different people deal with chronic illness in a general sense as I do have a chronic illness as well. It’s always such good conversation and a podcast I enjoy listening to.
