Being a Type 1 diabetic creates a unique and complex set of elements to balance. Often it is only us Type 1 diabetics who will ever truly understand what it is like to live with diabetes. We ‘get it’ and that is why Tim is on a mission to interview everyday type 1 diabetics from around the world.
The podcast takes on a relaxed personal vibe. If you are a type 1 diabetic or know somebody who is, this podcast is for you. Listen in and be encouraged...

Love the stories
I’m a 21 year old who’s been diagnosed for 2 years. I occasionally will meet someone who’s also T1, but for the most part it’s just me. This podcast gives me all types of different people who have gone through the same as me and often even more, which is super comforting.
Thanks for what you do Tim
I miss new episodes
Glad your back
So glad your back. My 5 year old has T1D and we love listening to you. We missed you :)
