Hey there, listeners!

At 13 years old, Craig Stubing started experiencing the symptoms of extremely high blood sugar. Without any experience with type 1 diabetes, his family mistook his symptoms as just puberty. Eventually, a visit to the doctor sent him to the emergency room and changed his life forever. Hear more of Craig’s story here.

Craig launched Beta Cell in 2015 as a response to an online community he felt was more about complaining than understanding each other. Through one-on-one interviews with people of all backgrounds, Craig tries to discover how type 1 diabetes impacts our lives and how our lives impact our type 1 diabetes.

To help explore the many aspects of living with type 1 diabetes, Craig created and hosts three more shows: Out of Range, a talk show about "real things diabetes;" The 3s, where people with T1D interview their friends and family; and Thicker Than Water, which documents Craig's Aunt Laura getting diagnosed with, and adjusting to, life with type 1 diabetes at 60 years old.

Our shows will always be free, but with your support we'll be able to cover our expenses, continue to innovate with audio storytelling, and host live tapings of the show.

As a thank you, we have Out of Range After Dark, a show only for our fans. When you join the Fan Club, you'll immediately get access to the entire backlog of the show too.
