Gluten-Free News Podcast

If you aren’t listening to the Gluten-Free News Podcast, you should be. These news briefs are quick (usually less than 5 minutes long), informative, and released daily. Andrea Tucker, founder of Baltimore Gluten-Free, is an amazing celiac disease advocate who has her finger on the pulse of the gluten-free and celiac news world. I am amazed by Andrea’s commitment to putting this podcast out each weekday and connecting with people from around the world. You can find this podcast on all of your favorite podcast platforms.

Today I was pleasantly surprised to be included in Andrea’s weeklong International Women’s Day episode. I share my story of living for more than 40 years and what lead me to become the celiac advocate I am today.

Thank you to Andrea for featuring me and for being such a great celiac friend and advocate.

Take a listen.

Gluten-Free Living – An American Perspective

I was recently interviewed by Annika Dhariwal, founder of Gluten Free Jio, for her webinar series featuring gluten-free and celiac experts from across the globe. I was very honored to share my experience of growing up with celiac disease with her audience and the history behind Gluten-Free Globetrotter. We talked about celiac disease as a child, traveling the world, and differences between India and the United States. It was a very interesting conversation.

Annika is a celiac teenager from India who is currently studying at boarding school in the United Kingdom. She shares my love of traveling and doesn’t let celiac disease stop her from seeing the world. When I asked Annika the meaning of her website name “Gluten Free Jio,” I just loved her explanation.

Gluten Free Jio means to live gluten free. Jio in Hindi means to live. The idea behind this is to spread awareness about living a gluten free life in India and share my story and experiences of living in a boarding school and traveling as a celiac.”
