Art of Oncology articles have long been among the Journal of Clinical Oncology’s (JCO) most popular content, featuring vivid, elegiac stories about the ethical, moral, and emotional challenges faced by terminally ill patients and the oncologists who treat them. Now fans of the Art of Oncology can listen to these captivating stories as podcasts. These new podcasts, called Cancer Stories: The Art of Oncology, will feature a dramatic reading of an Art of Oncology article performed by a celebrity actor or artist, followed by a Q&A session with the author of the article, hosted by JCO consultant editor Lidia Schapira, MD, FASCO.
The first two podcasts are available now on the JCO website. “White Knuckling,” written by Daniel Rayson, MD, and performed by Peri Gilpin from the television show Frasier, is a tale of two nurses—one who has cancer, and one who is her caregiver. In “Haunted,” written by Katherine E. Reeder-Hayes, MD, MBA, MS, and performed by JoBeth Williams from the films Poltergeist, Kramer vs. Kramer, and The Big Chill, a doctor recalls how patients who have passed away both haunt and encourage her.
