Rad Chat: Oncology Focused Podcast

3 December 2021

Rad Chat​ is the new cancer specific podcast, designed for cancer patients, healthcare professionals and educationalists.

Hosted by Jo McNamara and Naman Julka-Anderson, both therapeutic radiographers who have unique backgrounds, bringing specialist knowledge and skills to the conversation. They have already had some truly amazing guests including Rachael Moses, Charlotte Beardmore, Janice St John Mathews and Will Kinnard to name but a few, with more high-profile guests lined up until March next year. Their guests include cancer patients, healthcare professionals, researchers, and leaders within healthcare and oncology. 

The new podcast is designed to educate and inform healthcare professionals working in oncology with impending CPD accreditation. Alongside every podcast are some reflective questions and links to resources and research. The podcast is an easily accessible platform to promote the oncology workforce and share patient stories and experiences.

''We started this podcast to help promote the therapeutic radiography profession and showcase the balance between the interpersonal skills and technical knowledge we use on a daily basis to treat cancer patients with radiotherapy. I really believe it can have a huge impact for Radiography as a whole with the diverse range of patients, students and healthcare professionals we have lined up as guests." Naman Julka-Anderson


''Rad Chat is a great way for all healthcare professionals to stay connected with what’s happening in all aspects of oncology. Naman and I have over 25 years' experience working in the field, which helps us navigate this often complex and fast paced area of healthcare.

The best thing about Rad Chat is that we work hard to bring our listeners, not only brilliant guests, but lots of different voices to share their experiences and expertise on this often complex and emotive topic.

Finally, it’s important to me that we ensure Rad Chat is accessible and relevant to all our audience - which is why we love to hear feedback and questions from our listeners to make sure we always hit the spot.'' Jo McNamara
