On today's DiabetesPowerShow, Charlie Cherry, Chris Moore, Theresa Moore, Chris Daniel, and our official behind-the-scenes announcer, Lori Cherry, celebrate ten years…that's right…a full decade of Diabetes podcasting. In celebration of this milestone, we indulge ourselves, as we reminisce about the amazing adventure this show has been for us. We have met so many incredible people from all around the world in the Diabetes community. We have traveled from coast to coast, attending Diabetes events as ambassadors for not only DiabetesPowerShow, but for the Diabetes community at large.
On August 28, 2006, DiabetesPowerShow was born. When we started, we were not 100% sure there would be a show number 2, or that we would be around the following month. Here we are, August 28, 2016, and we are going stronger than ever!
Very few podcasts that involve 2 or more co-hosts survive more than a few episodes. We started in the very beginning of the new technology called ‘podcasting’. Out of the first wave of thousands of podcasts, created at that time, covering a variety of topics, (now there are millions) there are just a handful of remaining ‘original' podcasters. We proudly count ourselves among that small group of people. The five of us have developed a bond and friendship that is unbreakable. After 10 years, whether the microphones are turned on or off, we can almost read each other’s minds, and finish each other’s sentences. DiabetesPowerShow is the longest consistently-running Diabetes related podcast in the world. We are committed to taking this show into the future, as we all work towards a cure for this thing called Diabetes.
