Male Breast Cancer with Ron Rapaport | Episode 053

Universe, what’s good?! Today’s episode features Ron Rapaport, a male breast cancer survivor. Yes, breast cancer impacts men! Accounting for one percent of total diagnoses, men are often diagnosed at later stages with poor prognoses. In addition, men often feel out of place in the sea of pink.

Ron is on a mission to change the way males are perceived and included in the breast cancer conversation. Here at TCSN, we are proponents of inclusivity and Ron does an excellent job of listing what needs to be changed in the community. Thanks, Ron for your tireless efforts! You can find him on Facebook.

He Blinded Me With Science: Talking Biotech with Kevin Folta | Episode 046

Universe, what’s good?! Today's episode features Kevin Folta, a public educator and science communicator. Kevin helps the world understand biotechnology, and helped sequence the strawberry genome with the University of Florida, where he has been a professor since 2002.

Ending the monthly discussion around mindset, this episode features discussions on the marketing around food, GMOs, and alternative cancer "cures." Tune in as we discuss his background, enthusiasm for horticulture, and his podcast Talking Biotech. Kevin also takes a few moments to ask Kelsey a few questions on being a young cancer survivor as well!

If you have been frustrated over marketing around dietary choices, this is an excellent interview to listen to, as Kevin is here to diminish the fears about what exactly is in our food. Tune in as we discuss his journey, how his life changed after his breakthrough, and of course, science!

If you would like to contact Kevin, you can find him on Facebook and Instagram. His podcast Talking Biotech is available on all major platforms. Don't forget to sign up for updates! We will be releasing a newsletter soon. If you would like to donate to the cause, you can click here.
