Dana Lewis first created #DIYPS in December 2013, just so she could better hear her her continuous glucose monitor (CGM) alarms better. Since that time Dana, and many other diabetes tech pioneers, have pushed forward with the Open Artificial Pancreas System. 5 years later we look at what Dana's doing now and what she has in mind for the future. 

Dana also shares what the FDA and healthcare companies can learn from the do it yourself community. We also talk about what holds back many people (like Stacey) from jumping it DIY diabetes tech and why Dana says we shouldn't let our fears stop us.

Author KJ Howe is back with another book in the Thea Paris thriller series. Skyjack, the sequel to The Freedom Broker, is an action-adventure series where the main character, a hostage rescuer and seriously tough lady, also happens to live with type 1 diabetes.

**A few minor audio issues with this show. Stacey sounds like she's inside a tin can at times! Apologies, should be fixed for next week**

We find out why Howe decided to focus on diabetes for this series; she has a background in medical writing but doesn't have type 1 herself. She also shares tips for aspiring writers and talks about her annual Thriller Fest in New York - this year, George RR Martin is making an appearance.
