Sweet spot

Just binge listened to all the episodes. Couldn’t have been better…well maybe English accents might sound better. So much info with a side of humor and hope for the future. As an RN really liked the Science episode, as it is developing as well. You bring the Universe of Diabetes down to a personal level or have an expert that does it even better. Thanks for the podcasts.

Bravo

Just finished episode 4. Very informative to a 67 year old LADA patient who was diagnosed in Nov 2020. Always learn something from TCOYD whether from web, videos, conferences and now podcasts. Thank you for performing this service to those who want to be full participants in their type 1 diabetes control and management.
