This is the first live Freaking the F Out podcast and it was recorded at Channel 4 on 12/03/19 for Stand Up To Cancer. Kelsey and Maddy were joined by the incredible Deborah James (aka @bowelbabe from the You, Me & The Big C podcast) and Dr Sam Godfrey (@sciencemansam, a Partnership Specialist at Cancer Research UK).
They discuss what cancer actually is, why people often have anxiety around getting themselves checked and how to be careful about the type of language to use when having these conversations. Deborah also spoke about her experience of living with stage 4 bowel cancer with inspiring openness. Informative and moving, with some laughs along the way and questions from a live audience.
