Rob on the Radio

Mark Forsythe - BC Almanac
Last week I was a guest on CBC Radio's noon hour show "BC Almanac", with host Mark Forsythe.  The topic of conversation was "The Language of Cancer", inspired in part by the recent cancer death of NDP leader Jack Layton.  We were particularly speaking about the use of "battle" type metaphors when referring to the cancer experience.

I was on-air for about 20 minutes.  The opening part is a conversation with Mark and the second half is a call-in format.  You can listen to the show at this link... Rob on CBC Almanac.  My piece starts at about 20:19 in the podcast.

It was a wonderful experience to be able to speak on a matter which is so close to my heart.  Mark is a skilled interviewer and an easy guy to have a conversation with.

Be well enough...  Rob; in Vancouver
