I want to thank the WGN radio hosts, Steve King and Johnnie Putman (spelled it right this time!) for inviting Bill and me into the studio last night. We had a wonderful discussion about many aspects of celiac disease ranging from diagnosis to treatment to cooking gluten-free. We  shared some personal stories of our journeys both before and after the diagnosis of celiac disease, as well as related illnesses that can affect patients once they have been on a gluten-free diet.  The conversation flowed, the time passed by in a blink, and Bill and I were left feeling so impressed by these two talented individuals fighting a very similar fight to our own.

I hope that those of  you who were able to stay up for the broadcast were able to connect with one or several things discussed. If you were unable to hear the broadcast, it  is being continuously run, via podcast, on Steve and Johnnie’s website. You can find it at Steve and Johnnie’s web site, under the “uncut podcasts” link. Just click on the audio segment of the topic you want to hear.

We hope that last night was the start of a long, collaborative relationship. As I wrote to Steve and Johnnie, we feel as if we have added new members to our extended family. Thank you, once again, for a wonderful experience.
