Our Cancer Journey Podcast

The Our Cancer Journey Podcast is a place for those impacted by Cancer, their caregivers, their loved ones and also those wishing to prevent illness. 

Our podcast is more than a program about cancer, it's a conversation about life and how we can make ours better.

Together we explore ways we can optimize our lives through the experiences of diagnosis, treatments and beyond into the future of Survivorship. 

We discuss ways to help YOU feel better, live happier, expand your self-empowerment, and enhance your life experience. It is more than a podcast about medicine, or even Cancer. It is about you, the Whole Person, and tips, ideas and strategies to possibly improve your cancer journey and make your life better.

Hosted by unique storyteller and unconventional creator Bruce Watkins, the Our Cancer Journey Podcast provides a unique voice to people in the cancer community that transcends the conventional medical and patient experience-based shows.

Please share this podcast with anyone you feel may benefit from our content, our outlook, our attitude, and especially our passionate advocacy for self-empowerment!

About Bonus Episodes:

Our program produces 3 types of episodes:

  • A produced Interview-Type episode
  • A produced Solo-Type episode
  • And, occasionally, an informal “Bonus” episode

Unlike our regular topic-driven shows, in these bonus shows we skip the production. We just play a short tune, turn on the mic, and give you some quick OCJ news, updates on future episodes or some stream-of-conscious commentary.

We hope is informal and personal format helps you, our listeners, stay in touch with what we are doing and where we are going. Thanks for taking a listen.
