Presenting Episode 84 with my guest Victoria Cumbow. Victoria writes for the Huntsville Times - so we spent part of the show talking about journalism in theory and in practice. She has type 1 diabetes - so we spent some time talking about her diagnosis, being single with diabetes and the diabetes online community. She is also a graduate from Auburn University - which means we're talking about "War Eagle" and college towns.

Additionally, she was on the front lines reporting and assiting with relief efforts in the wake of the devastating tornados that hit the Northern Alabama area a few weeks go. Our conversation around this topic revolved around social media's ability to assist in a time where communication was key, not just for people in the area but for people across the country. It's a conversation you don't want to miss.

Keep up with Victoria on her blog -, follow her on Twitter @victoriacumbow and keep an eye on her Facebook page too.
