Prepare for belly laughs and a healthy dose of T1D camaraderie in this midweek special of the ‘We Are T1D’ podcast! Mike and Jack bring you an uproarious collection of outtakes that didn’t make the cut but definitely deserve a spotlight. From the hilarious misadventures of ‘Scuba Susie’ to the unforgettable ‘carbohydrate’ jingle, this episode is a testament to the unpredictable and often humorous side of life with Type 1 Diabetes.

But it’s not all giggles and jingles; the hosts share a listener’s ingenious – albeit slightly cheeky – use of the ‘diabetes card’ to turn a night out on its head. Damien’s story of turning a bouncer’s skepticism into an all-access pass with a free cider on the side is both cunning and comical, showcasing the lighter side of navigating social situations with T1D.

Join Mike and Jack as they navigate the quirks of T1D life, from the frustration of ‘bottled water’ accents to the hypothetical (and humorous) medicinal uses of ‘gonorrhoea’. It’s an episode that reminds us to laugh through the lows and celebrate the highs, both in blood sugar and in life.
