If you have type 1 diabetes there’s more resources available than ever before on the chronic condition in which a damaged pancreas produces little or no insulin. All of that information is good news for those seeking tips on treatment, technological advances and financial assistance for medicine. The bad news? It’s hard to know where to begin.
That’s certainly the case with type 1 diabetes podcasts. Podcasts, those episodic, radio show-esque productions, have roots that date back to the 1980s. However, they didn’t go mainstream until 2004 when iPods became popular. In fact, the term “podcast” was born by combining the words “iPod” and “broadcast.”
Since then podcasts have exploded in popularity, and now there are more than 115,000 English-language podcasts online. According to one survey from 2017, 42 million Americans older than the age of 12 listen to podcasts weekly.
