The Celiac Project Podcast: 2 Guys Talking Gluten Free--hosted by Michael Frolichstein (Director of The Celiac Project Documentary) and Cam Weiner. Join Mike and Cam as they discuss living with celiac disease and navigating a safe gluten free lifestyle. They will feature special guests in the gluten free community, discuss current events and topics of interest.
Celiac Disease vs. IBS
There are new studies looking at the correlation between celiac disease and IBS. Mike and Cam talk about their personal diagnosis of both conditions and talk about some of the similarities and differences that they see between the two. They also examine the fact that some people with IBS who are not diagnosed with celiac disease (but have a celiac gene), tend to do better on a gluten free diet. Hopefully studying celiac and IBS together will lead to more medical breakthroughs!

Entertaining Show to Help with Gluten Free Life
I enjoy listening to this show each week and it is on the top of my playlist. Both hosts help you feel better about your celiac diagnosis, and share information that helps you understand the disease better. Very easy to listen to, well produced and informative. I highly recommend weekly listening for anyone with Celiac disease, or for those with someone with Celiac in their life.
Lifeline for a Newly Diagnosed Celiac
I was diagnosed in March 2020, right at the beginning of the pandemic in North America. Three days after my diagnosis, I started working from home, where I’ve been for seven months. This podcast was my lifeline during this stressful time. I wasn’t able to get an appointment with my dietician for several months, waiting for stay at home orders to be lifted. So I’ll be honest, I got most of my early Celiac education from this podcast.
Mike & Cam taught me the basics, like how to avoid cross contamination at home or when ordering out. It educated me about food labeling laws. And some topics were fun, like finding yummy drinks, travel stories, or interviewing gluten detection dog trainers. They opened my eyes to a whole world.
The show is educational and entertaining.
Extremely happy to have found this podcast! Just two passionate guys spreading knowledge. I greatly appreciate the honesty and humor.
