Episode 7- DS Diet…Continued with Dr. Jenny Kimes & Zach Kalley

We dive deeper into the conversation about the "Down Syndrome Diet" with a special guest, Zach Kalley. Zach has been on the Ds Diet for about a year to chat with us about the diet and how it’s been going for him. This conversation ended up being a real-time look into how difficult it can be to change your diet, especially for someone who is very set in their ways. Zach is absolutely hilarious, and Dr. Jenny knocks it out of the park helping him navigate some of the roadblocks he has been facing.

Episode 1- Al and Linda Hublar Part 1

March 20, 2020

In this episode Mark Hublar co-hosts with Carly. Mark is a celebrity in the Down syndrome community and is mostly known for his fabulous motivation speeches. He is a 55 year old college graduate who lives on his own, vacations solo, drives a moped, and drinks a cold glass of milk before bed each night. Carly and Mark sat down with his parents Al and Linda to talk about what it was like to raise Mark in the 60s and 70s when Down syndrome caused so much fear and individuals with disabilities were hidden away from view. The Hublars have truly paved the way for other families in our community and have the stories to prove it. We had a lovely conversation and got to hear SO many great Mark stories as well. In fact, our conversation was all so good- we have split it into two episodes! Please enjoy part one of Al and Linda Hublar!
