I sure love finding others that are on a mission to do good in the world.
I can't believe it took me this long to have the amazing opportunity to chat with Michael and Cam from The Celiac Project!
Today episode is a special one. I have two celiac celebrities. Yes I am talking major celebrities to our gluten free community. Mike and Cam are on a public mission to help people who are coping with the life changing diagnosis of having to live gluten free to feel empowered moving forward, and live a safe and fulfilling life. Their efforts to advance the conversation about what we can do individually and as a society to support the gluten intolerant community has been an inspiring journey for all of us to watch and be a part of. Michael was finally diagnosed with celiac disease after so many long years of suffering, As a filmmaker himself, he decided the world needed a documentary of true and important facts about Celiac Disease. So he took on the Celiac Project. I am going to let you hear form yourself how Michael and cam joined forces to continue this effort with their Podcasts ‘The Celiac Project’
Shortly after connecting with Mike and Cam, we realized how close our missions aligned and had an instant connection. I wanted them to be guests on my podcast and they asked me to be a guest on theirs! So that is exactly what we did. This is a 2 part recording… To hear them interview me, go check them out at the celiac project wherever you like to listen to podcasts. And now lets patch you into the conversation that I had with them and we can learn all about the film and all the amazing resources they have for our community!
It was awesome chatting with them both. Their mission and desire to help the gluten free community bring us all together and obviously we had an instant bond. It is a special treat that I was able to be a guest on their podcast and them on mine. That is what this community is all about. Sharing, caring and loving one another!!
In this interview I was able to talk with both Michael and cam about their mission, their ‘WHY” and their desire to help tour community.
They shared how starting their podcast has helped them to learn from so many amazing people as they interview and help the world be a better gluten free place!
They have created an incredible Celiac documentary that this world so badly needs to help create more awareness. Read below more about their mission, drive and how they are delivering resources to our amazing gluten free community!
A few words from Michael:
'I’m Michael Frolichstein, and I created The Celiac Project in 2014 while making my documentary of the same name. My vision was to use my filmmaking background to help raise awareness about celiac disease after suffering for many years and finally being diagnosed with it at age 40.
The mission of The Celiac Project, the film and podcast, is to help people who are coping with the life changing diagnosis of having to live gluten free to feel empowered moving forward, and live a safe and fulfilling life. My efforts to advance the conversation about what we can do individually and as a society to support the gluten intolerant community has been an inspiring journey that I am grateful for every day.
After the release of the film, I felt strongly about continuing to harness the power of people with either celiac disease or gluten intolerance locally and globally by creating The Celiac Project Podcast with my friend and fellow celiac, Cam Weiner, in 2016. We have poured our hearts out, poured drinks (literally), and interviewed guests too numerous to list! We have even created our #TCPInnerCircle, building a private online community of supporters, enabling us to all share our experiences in a more intimate way, including private hangouts. You can learn more about this by watching our Patreon video.
