PHILADELPHIA (August 13, 2019) – Fox Chase Cancer Center will launch “Connected by Cancer,” a new narrative podcast, on August 20, 2019.

The seven-part audio documentary will be updated weekly and is available for free on Apple Podcasts, Spotify and other podcasting platforms. Each episode focuses on a different aspect of life at one of the first Comprehensive Cancer Centers designated by the National Cancer Institute including episodes on patients, doctors, researchers, nurses and volunteers.

“Fox Chase Cancer Center has an amazing story, and podcasting is a fast-growing new medium. We developed ‘Connected by Cancer’ to tell the story of a shared mission, and we believe anyone who listens to podcasts and wants to know more about cancer will enjoy it,” said Jeremy Moore, senior director for communications at Fox Chase Cancer Center.

The podcast is a narrative style modeled after industry-best podcasts like This American Life. Each episode is roughly 30 minutes; listen to the trailer here.
