Appearing on CBC Radio again today at 5:40 p.m.

Permalinks to this entry: individual page or in monthly context. For more material from my journal, visit my home page or the archive.

UPDATE: The audio (MP3 file) is now available at my podcast. You can also listen to a slightly expanded version on CBC's own "BC This Week" podcast for April 7, 2007.

Back in January, when I first started putting information about my cancer on this blog, I appeared on CBC Radio here in Vancouver to talk about it. Today I'll be following up by appearing on the same show, "On the Coast" with Priya Ramu, about what's happened in the interim—which is (if you've been reading) rather a lot, and we're just getting started.

If you're the Internetty type, you can listen live to the high bandwidth (direct file link) or low bandwidth (direct file link) streams (Windows Media format, argh!). If you can manage to record it and send me a copy, that would be cool, though I may be able to obtain it directly from CBC.

I have to try to remember to thank my employers at Navarik and the amazing people at the Cancer Agency on air for the help and support they've given me so far.

That's good for me, but it's not really fair to others either—cancer is a disease that gets a lot of sympathy. No one blames you for it. But if I were addicted to something, or clinically depressed, or had another condition that is still full of stigma, would I feel so comfortable blogging about it, enough to go on the radio? Probably not. And that's a shame.
