Today we launch our brand-new podcast series 'Diabetes Discussions'

Podcast logo

'Diabetes Discussions’ is our brand-new podcast series, and our first two episodes are now available to listen to on our podcast hub, on AcastApple and Spotify, or wherever you get your podcasts.

Over 10 million people in the UK listen to podcasts each week, and we’ve developed a podcast where we discuss the topics that matter most to people affected by diabetes. 

Diabetes Discussions’ is our new podcast series where we talk about the realities of diabetes and feature shared lived experiences – featuring guests from all walks of life who know first-hand what life with diabetes is like.  

Resident host Jack Woodfield, who has lived with diabetes for over 30 years, steers the conversation with brilliant guests including famous faces like Roxy Horner and Nikita Kuzmin.

We'll also be talking to healthcare specialists who help people manage living with diabetes day-to-day, as well as researchers at the cutting edge of diabetes medical care and technology. 

Which topics does the podcast cover? 

We’ll be covering a range of topics in this series, including: 

  • Living with diabetes 
  • Mental health and wellbeing 
  • Technology 
  • Sport and exercise 
  • Research

Jack, who works here at Diabetes UK as a News Content Producer, hopes the conversations will be relatable and inspiring:

“Living with diabetes can be really tough, so by talking to real people who live with it every day, we hope to show others who live with this condition that they are not alone. Hopefully there will be some useful advice and inspirational moments along the way too.”

Artist and full-time volunteer Katie Lamb, who features on the first episode, thinks it’s important to have support from people who understand what living with diabetes is really like:

“It's worth remembering that you are so much more than diabetes. I've found it really easy to be overwhelmed by the numbers and think that that is really what defines me, but know that you're made to be so much more than this and there's no moral value in those numbers. They don't make you a good or bad person. They are just information about what your body needs.” 

Where is the podcast available?

Episode 1 (Living with diabetes) and Episode 2 (Exercise and sport) are both available now, with new episodes released fortnightly. You can catch up on episodes on all the usual podcast platforms, including AcastApple and Spotify.

Or listen via our website, at the podcast hub.

Listen, subscribe and share with anyone you know who is affected by diabetes to help more people discover the podcast.
