Episode 30: “Cancer” Edition, with Sue Armstrong & George Johnson (video)

Posted by jnshaumeyer on 2 May 2015

Streamed live on 30 April 2015.

For the first episode of our third year, our subject was cancer, a topic we’ve discussed before and we’ll likely discuss again.

Our guests are the authors of two notable recent books on the topic: Sue Armstrong, author of p53 : The Gene that Cracked the Cancer Code, and George Johnson, author of The Cancer Chronicles : Unlocking Medicine’s Deepest Mystery.

We enjoyed a fast-paced, engaging conversation filled with interesting stories and insight into the complicated workings of cancer, and the remarkable advances in understanding that have come from cancer research in the last few decades. Sometimes an hour is just not long enough for everything that comes to mind to talk about.
