February 28, 2014 – S. Lochlann Jain

My guest on this program is S. Lochlann Jain, Associate Professor in the Department of Anthropology at Stanford University, and author of Malignant: How Cancer Becomes Us, in which she aims to better understand American life and culture through cancer.

And yet, despite billions of dollars having been spent in search of a cure, it remains a pervasive threat.
