In today’s news blog, we hear from Katie who works in our media team here at Macmillan. She’s writing today to tell our Community all about a new podcast, ‘Talking Cancer’, that’s been created with the aims to share experiences and hear from people affected by cancer.

Hi everyone!

We wanted to be the first to tell you that the first two episodes of ‘Talking Cancer’, the new national Macmillan podcast, are now downloadable on all main podcasting platforms, including Apple Podcasts and Spotify Podcasts.

Tune in to hear heart-warming, intimate conversations between Radio DJ and Macmillan supporter Emma B and the people living with, or affected by, cancer who have taken the time to share their stories about one of the toughest times of their lives. Emma also has a chat with Macmillan professional Dany Bell, to answer common questions on the topic discussed in each episode.

The first series will be made up of six episodes, and we’d love to hear what you would like us to talk about in the future. For series one, Emma discusses:

  • Diagnosis
  • Treatable but not curable cancer
  • Life after cancer
  • End of life
  • Work & cancer
  • Treatment

In the first episode, Emma talks to Chloe about her leukaemia diagnosis, discussing the impact her diagnosis had on her family life and mental health, and how she found her best way through. In the second episode, Emma speaks to Adam, who tells her about how we was diagnosed with a brain tumour and what it’s like living with treatable but not curable cancer.
