2: A Discussion with Thapi Semenya
Thapi (she/her) and Zoe (she/they) are back with Episode 2 to talk about crowdfunding, the problems with diabetes nonprofits, inaccessible technology, and the similarities between South Africa and the US.  Thapi is collecting funds to insure 16 diabetics in a rural part of Polokwane, Limpopo continue to get the insulin and supplies they need. These diabetics are unable to access clinics and many insulins are out of stock in their area. Shipping takes months at a time and is not an option for obtaining insulin. Thapi is asking for $300 each month to purchase NovoRapid, Lantus, syringes, and testing supplies. You can send funds to Thapi on PayPal: paypal.me/thapisemenya Thapi's Social Media: Twitter & Instagram You can go to MutualAidDiabetes.com to request help obtaining insulin and supplies, request crowdfunding, learn more about MAD, donate, or subscribe to our Patreon! MAD Online is produced and edited by Zoe Witt.

1: NPR you kidding me?
Welcome to MAD Online! This first episode was unplanned but Allie (she/her,) Emily (they/them,) and Zoe (she/they) are here to talk about their disappointment with this recent Marketplace story they were interviewed for! We discuss why we hate the $35 copay cap, how NPR Here & Now is spreading misinformation with their coverage of insulin, why Human Rights Watch's insulin report was different, and the problems with mainstream media. You can go to MutualAidDiabetes.com to request help obtaining insulin and supplies, request crowdfunding, learn more about MAD, donate, or subscribe to our Patreon! MAD Online is produced and edited by Zoe Witt.
