Izzie has type 1 diabetes. Silvi has ulcerative colitis. Only one of them can drive. And they’re making a podcast.
What business do two chronically ill millennials have in touring the country in a beat-up old ambulance? Subscribe to find out – and join these fully-sick friends as they go on the road to find other chronic illness-havers just like them.
Pill Pop is for anyone with a chronic illness who just wishes they had some mates who understood what it’s like … and for everyone else to dip into a world they potentially never knew existed.
Content warning: Discussions of severe illness, hospitals, medical trauma.
Sensory warning: Some scenes at the beginning contain loud ambulance sirens.
