Phunky Diabetic Podcast

Welcome to the Phunky Diabetic Podcast’s Website!

Welcome, everyone, to “The Phunky Diabetic Podcast,” hosted by Kate Itacy and in honor of the dearly departed Phife Dawg of A Tribe Called Quest! Rest in Power, Phife.

A few years ago, Kate co-hosted the podcast “Hammer Time With Nikki and Kate,” which you’re welcome to listen here.

After Nikki decided to step away from podcasting in order to focus on raising her girls, Kate recorded a few more episodes on her own, then took some time off to reflect upon how to contribute meaningful content to the podcasting community.

With the upcoming release of Kate’s memoir Relentless: From National Champion to Physically Disabled Activist on July 28 (now open for pre-orders here), she’s decided that the best way to contribute would be to share her and other type 1 diabetics’ stories and experiences with the world.

On “The Phunky Diabetic Podcast,” Kate will be interviewing guests and discussing a wide variety of topics impacting diabetics, including the recent COVID-19 pandemic, sex and sexuality, diabulimia and eating disorders, participating in athletics, feeling like an outsider or freak among non-diabetics, having access to sufficient and effective diabetic supplies, healthcare for diabetics outside of the United States, traveling, dating, and much more!

Check out our podcast episodes on our episodes page, with descriptions of each episode posted on the blog page the day they’re released.

You can also listen and subscribe to the podcast on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Stitcher, TuneIn, YouTube, and very soon, Google Podcasts.

We hope you’ll come back to visit our page and get updates on future episodes.

Please enjoy, and feel free to let us know your thoughts on the episodes, as well as suggestions for questioning our guests and/or topics to discuss in future episodes!

Be well, dear listeners!
