KIND PERSON: Are you listening to NPR right now?
BIGFOOT: No. We just got home
KPERSON: There’s a brilliant scientist on Terry Gross, talking about neonatal diabetes. You have to hear this. You will love her
BFOOT: Is it on GBH or RNI?
KP: It’s on 88.1. That one. Oh, never mind. Now she’s talking about heart disease. Try to find it though. You would really love her
It true. This voice, this smart British scientist, a balm. Da bomb. Listen describe why new treatment neonatal diabetes important. If impatient, skip ahead 8:35 in recording. The voice. Like hug from less sexually threatening Nigella Lawson. Bigfoot love science. Thankful science care for disease, even different Type, and so beautiful voice.
Science part very interesting too, Bigfoot never hear of neonatal diabetes. Electrons. Ions. Spark of life.
TERRY GROSS:…to live life without the encumbrance of an insyoolin pump (even Terry Gross starts saying it the British way!)
FRANCES ASHCROFT: It’s not trivial…if you’re an eighteen year old and you want to wear a slinky, sexy dress…what do you do with your insyoolin pump for your prom? She had to strap it to her leg…with, sort of, package tape. That’s not very comfortable when you’re dancing. So you can see…it does matter. It also matters if you’re wearing a pump and you want to go swimming…you have to take it off. And then put it back on again. It’s not very nice…just…injecting yourself every day, especially if you’re a parent who’s got to inject a tiny baby several times a day…that’s not so easy…
Must hear voice.
