| Season 1 | Episode 8 |


In this episode: Upcoming series on caregiver guilt, a proof caregivers can be champions

In the final show of the podcast’s first season we discussed our upcoming plans and a story of a caregiver who has recently become an Olympic champion. The next season starts 1 September, watch this space! Evan shared an inspiring story of 14 year-old Chinese diver Quan Hongchan who became the second youngest Chinese diver to win such a trophy. It turned out she actually took up the sport to earn money to support her ill mother.


We also announced our brand new 8-part series on ‘Letting go of caregiver guilt’ will be on every Tuesday. It is all about self-care, acceptance and releasing the feeling of guilt most of us are so familiar with.

It was also the focus of this episode to give you the first taste of what we’re going to discuss in depth.


We mentioned numerous reasons why it’s so easy to feel like you are not doing enough as a caregiver.

Caregiver guilt is real and we all have it. However, since you created this weight in your mind you can also lift it up. We hint on how. Evan shared another practical kidney health tip, this time focusing on oxalates.
