The 'Baldest' Breast Cancer Podcast Yet

logo final 2 gp6dto

“One Lump or Two?” - a brand new podcast that’s not afraid to laugh (and cry) in the face of breast cancer. Featuring two women and three boobs, ‘baldly’ tackling life's darkest moments.

In a poignant (and rather unideal) twist of fate, two women - in what should be their prime - found themselves confronting the nightmare that is breast cancer. Unveiling the raw and unfiltered reality of life during and after diagnosis and treatment, their new podcast radiates with a rare blend of candour, humour, and relatability. Join these two fierce women as they navigate their rollercoaster of emotions, offering an intimate glimpse into the challenges, triumphs, and unexpected levity that comes with facing breast cancer head-on.

Shelley, diagnosed at the age of 29, faced the daunting reality just six months before Kate, who received her diagnosis at 30. Their paths crossed through an unexpected connection on social media when Kate courageously reached out with a plea for support. Now, the duo are venturing into the world of podcasting. Embracing a straight-talking approach to the often mind-boggling world of cancer diagnosis and treatment, Shelley and Kate channel their shared experiences into an unfiltered narrative that is as honest as it is light-hearted.

Motivated by a shared mission, Shelley and Kate embark on this podcasting journey not only to raise awareness about cancer in young people but also to be a relatable and comforting presence to those grappling with their own diagnoses or supporting loved ones through the journey. Through genuine conversations and candid reflections, Shelley and Kate aim to offer solace, laughter, camaraderie and that feeling of “wow I thought it was only me!” to listeners who may feel isolated in their struggles.

So tune in as these two remarkable women dare to bare all, from the depths of despair to the beautiful moments of growth and hilarity. This isn't just a podcast; it's a beacon of empathy, a source of inspiration, and a realisation of the age old adage, misery really does love company.

You can listen to One Lump or Two? on all major podcast platforms including Spotify, Amazon, and Apple Podcasts from January 17th 2024 with weekly episode releases.

Elite sports stars spend far longer in the rest and practise phases than performing, but what they do in the rest and practise phases is a critical part of what helps them to perform when it matters. When we conducted research for our latest book, Rest. Practise. Perform., we found that elite sports have a lot to teach us about how to rest and as a result, perform better.

His legendary exploits, particularly his valiant battle against the fearsome dragon, have become ingrained in the cultural fabric of the nation. Yet, amidst the myths and legends, the historical details of his life remain somewhat elusive.
