At 17, Ryan Reed was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. At 19, Ryan signed with Roush Fenway to drive the No. 16 Ford in NASCAR’s Nationwide Series. Ryan and I spend an hour discussing all aspects of professional racing including the physical requirements, the mental preparation, and the exhilaration of driving at those speeds. We also cover Ryan’s diabetes diagnosis and how he manages his blood glucose while racing. Finally, Ryan opens up about the Drive to Stop Diabetes campaign and the incredible advocacy opportunities that have come, and will come his way. Enjoy.

I need to add Just Talking to my reader. I enjoy listening.
I think this is the first one I have listened to the moment it came out. Nice job, Chris!
