Discovering Our Scars Podcast E47


Beth Demme Blog

In Episode 47, Steph and I were joined by special guest, Daniel Kuykendall. Steph and Daniel worked together at Apple about a decade ago and they’ve been friends ever since. Daniel is a commercial photographer and videographer, but he’s a guest on this episode to talk about something much more personal—his life as a Type 1 Diabetic. This is an honest conversation about the emotional and financial costs of a lifelong illness. Daniel shares openly about what life is like with an insulin pump and how he deals with the constant finger pricks and fluctuating blood sugar. He talks about some of the thoughtless comments people make and how he’s learned to deal with insensitive questions. We then invite you to reflect on how you’ve reacted to people who are dealing with lifelong illness and how Daniel’s story might impact your reactions.
