In part 2 of our summer mailbag we dig into more of your heartfelt emails and comments. Hear about two listeners (and former guests) who connected in Berlin through the podcast. We also talk a little about how to advise friends and relatives who are looking to get tested. In addition, inspired by all the amazing comments we received about Jessica's appearance on a previous podcast, we discuss the next generation of up and coming young advocates.
It's mailbag time again! We love hearing from you, our loyal listeners, so we are digging into the mailbag to talk about some of your incredible emails and social media questions and comments. In part 1 we hear from a newly diagnosed baseball executive, talk about safe gluten free alcohol choices and also revisit some of the reactions from the controversial "Know Celiac" campaign.
Worlds collide for Cam as the guys are joined by Paintball Pro, and fellow celiac, Matt Kling. Matt is 21 and currently plays professional paintball for the top team, San Diego Dynasty (the Yankees of paintball). His celiac diagnosis coincided closely to his rise to the top of his sport. Matt shares some of the struggles that he endured along the way. His team has traveled all around the world and some of the destinations have been much easier to navigate than others. He ultimately has not let these challenges slow him down or get in the way of his passion for paintball.
Mike and Cam talk a little bit about some of Cam's favorite podcasters. They also talk about an article written by an inmate with celiac who is not getting treated well by the prison system. Finally, they talk about gluten in their dreams. Do you have dreams that you are eating gluten (both fantasy and the nightmare variety)? If so, please share them with us!
