Episode 7: When the Intruder Refuses to Leave

EOn this episode, Jenna talks to Stacie Chevrier, who has been dealing with (and this is putting it very midly) a really shitty kind of cancer: neuroendocrine tumors (aka carcinoid tumors). Basically, there's no cure. There can be long periods of hanging out with NED (no evidence of disease) but the damn stuff usually comes back. Stacie, a Nashville-based freelance writer, has taken long walks (500 mile long) and gone upside-down over yoga since her diagnosis. (She also lost her beloved dog while dealing with all this crapola, but there'sgood news via Twitter--there's a new puppy in her life.) As of this episode, Life (After Cancer) is expanding. From here on in, anybody dealing with cancer should consider Life (After Cancer) their hangout. This isn't just about survivorship. It's about all of it--from the day of diagnosis onward. Got chronic cancer? We're here for you. Though cancer is really a million different diseases, there's no reason we shouldn't all hang out together. We all ...

Episode 6: A Testis Conversation

EOn this episode, Jenna of the Boob Cancer talks to John Taylor of the Ball Cancer (it's like a post-cancer Game of Thrones episode) about the one thing you really don't want your doctor to say when she's looking at your nuts, mental health issues,going back to school when you still have chemo brain, online support groups, marriage, children, scanxiety, and much more. Oh, and talking to your mom about your nuts. Yeah, things get real really fast whenyou're diagnosed with testicular cancer at age 29. Oh, first, a warm fuzzy moment: this episode's guest makes one thing very clear--no matter how the world is making you feel,there are a lot of good people out there. Johnny T is one of the most open and generous with his story people I've come across. He's also generous with his time, offering other cancer survivors and patients, and people grappling with mental health issues a word or 2,000 of support when they reach out on Twitter. In 25 years as a writer, I have interviewed a lot of pe...

Episode 4: It's About the Kid

EJenna talks to writer Nicole Stellon O'Donnell, whose daughter was diagnosed with cancer at 8 years old, about parenting during and after cancer. The conversation wanders across plenty of territory, from being the anti-helicopter parent, the fetishization of cancer in society, being your child's "chemo butler," and, of course, dogs (in this case, a corgi). And the episode isn'tjust for cancer kid's caregivers, there's plenty to think about whether you're a parent or other kid-adjacent or cancer-adjacent person,acancer patient, survivor, cancer civilan, caregiver, or friend. Or if you just want to listen in as two women talk about some of the big stuff--and tumble around (and laugh about) some of the odd and hard things people go through.

Episode 3: The Long View

EJenna talks to writerRuth Pennebaker, who was diagnosed with cancer 22 years ago. The two met a decade or so ago in NYC. At the time, of course, Jenna had no idea that they would, one day, have cancer in common. Ruth talks about the wayssurvivorship changes over time, whether cancer changes you forever, thegood and incredibly bad of counting other survivors as some of your closest friends, and badass survivor behavior. But, first, a mild warning: there's a clicking noise on the tape. It's not super loud but it's there. I'm still working on getting rid of it and will upload a new version of the recording if I figure out the how-tos of de-clicking. Sorry about that. A mild slide downthe learning curve of podcasting. Sigh. (Technology!) Episode music: Please Listen Carefully by Jahzzar

Episode 2: Moving Right Along?

Jenna bringsAnnie, her first cancer friend, back to talk about the somewhat (ok, very) fluid dividing line between cancer and after cancer. What does it take to move past feeling like a patient? Mountain climbing? Or quieter pursuits? Also: Annie tells her one and only joke. Music:https://www.bensound.com/royalty-free-music

Episode 1: A Hair-Raising Chat

EIn the first episode, Jenna hangs out with her first cancer friend and talks about hair issues and other random stuff. Where else can you get hairless cats, testicles, knitting, and the occasional bit of salty language all in one place? (The episode is also Jenna's first go at editing audio so ... be gentle people. She had cancer, you know. Too much cancer card? OK, rescinded.)
