Welcome to another episode of poop problems podcast…

…where it is our job to sit down, shut up, and talk sh!t.

We do this because we like to laugh and joke but also because we know that people have actual poop problems and that a lot of poop problems can be made better.

Our episodes frequently involve guests who have had poop problems and also guests who are experts in poop. We talk to these experts and learn all kinds of information about poop so that you can learn and apply this information in your own life.

Lastly, we seek to normalize the human experience of pooping.

Episode 1: Introduction To Poop Problems Podcast and Interview with Daila Kinsey on Hyperdefecation Secondary To Graves Disease

In Episode 1 Heather shares a little bit about the inspiration behind Poop Problems Podcast and interviews Dalia Kinsey, a Registered Dietitian who shares her experience with Hyperdefecation secondary to Graves Disease.

Thankfully, Dalia has a great sense of humor and tells us about a pretty tough situation that involves a time she was visiting her sister in the Dominican Republic and the water was shut off.

We also learn more about Graves Disease, which is a thyroid condition that affects pretty much all aspects of metabolism, including how often a person has to have a bowel movement. Dalia has great advice for anyone who thinks they might have a thyroid condition and for anyone who wants to live well with a chronic health problem.

You can listen to the full episode here, on Anchor or your favorite podcast platform.
