Type One: Breaking Misconceptions With Humour

I don’t do Wordless Wednesdays, because I feel like I’m ripping you off of a blog post.

However, I feel that today’s entrant is a very worthy contender.

Landis got in touch with me last week and shared her web series, Type One with me. I enjoyed it so much that I felt compelled to share it here today.

Type One is about a young man, Matt, who has type 1 diabetes and is looking for love. Landis and her co-creator, Mike, both have personal connections to type 1 diabetes in their lives. Their web series uses comedy to break the common diabetes misconceptions and stereotypes, and if the first episode is anything to go by, they’ve done a smashing job.

It’s only an eight minute episode, and it’s well worth a watch. Look out for the part where Matt so casually pulls out his meter and insulin pen on a first date – I was hysterical.

Landis and Mike are hoping to raise enough money to film seven more episodes. You can check out their fundraising page here, which also features a Q and A with Landis and Mike.
