The Diabetic Show! with Mark & Dobie

We are fortunate to have access to a wide range of information for Diabetics from the people who appear on The Diabetic Show.  We thank them for their knowledge and time, but regretfully announce there will be no coffee mugs for their participation.

The Diabetic Show with Mark and Dobie
Troy Mcdonald – The Producer

While not a “Guest”, per se, Troy McDonald plays a pivotal role in the creation of the show as “The Producer”…which means throughout the show, he gives us fingers and hand gestures, as well as telling us where to go — and how to get there.  He even gets paid for this.  Troy has been producing TV, radio, and online content for almost ten years for a variety of platforms. In his spare time, he is a huge WWE fan as well as a commentator. He currently works with WGTD, a non-profit Wisconsin Public Radio and NPR affiliate for Kenosha, Racine, and Walworth counties.
