Episode 3: Adventure

This week we talk about ADVENTURE and we play an interview we did with Erin Spineto who is the founder of the Sea Peptide Academy and the authro of Islands and Insulin: A Diabetic Sailor’s Memoir.

After talking about our own commitments to start adventure, Corinna and Mike play the interview with Spineto who talks about the step-by-step guide that she’s launching that will help people choose, plan and execute an adventure and will hopefully also alleviate the stress that comes with diabetes.

TuDiabetes Live Interview Erin Spineto, author of Islands and Insulin

Erin Spineto, a UC San Diego graduate and science teacher, works with non-profit Insulindependence in her quest to inspire fellow Type I diabetics to overcome limitations. Determined to challenge herself as a Type I diabetic, she chronicles her solo sailing adventures and the ups and downs of life as a diabetic. She and her husband, Tony, live in San Diego, California with their two children.

Islands and Insulin is the story of a girl, given a boat, one hundred nautical miles of ocean, and way too much caffeine to reflect on how an incorrigible disease has altered her voyage into adulthood, all wrapped inside a diabetes survival manual. It is a cross between the humor of Steve Markley’s Publish This Book, the travel journal of Jimmy Buffett’s A Pirate Looks at Fifty, and the sailing of Pete Goss’s Close to the Wind minus the sixty knot winds, fifty foot waves, below freezing temperatures, and the slick escape from death… hopefully.
