Cancer Council Podcasts

Listen to experts and people affected by cancer talk about how to navigate the challenges of a cancer diagnosis or find calm with our meditation and relaxation podcast.

Cancer Council podcasts are a great way to learn more about cancer, treatments, side-effects and more.

Sometimes listening is easier than reading and our podcast series are a great way to hear experts explain common experiences for people with cancer.

We currently have four podcast series available:

  • The Thing About Cancer – Information and insights for people affected by cancer
  • The Thing About Advanced Cancer – Information and insights for people affected by advanced cancer
  • Finding Calm during Cancer – Listen to our relaxation and meditation podcast.

The Thing About Cancer and The Thing About Advanced Cancer come with full episode guides, including a transcript and links to the resources and services mentioned in each episode.
