It’s a packed month on the podcast, perfect for whiling away a quiet summer moment or two. In the news, we find out about the challenges of raising awareness about cancer in black and minority ethnic communities, as well as hearing from the winners of our SciencePod podcasting competition.

On a science tip, we hear from Cancer Research UK Senior Clinical Research Fellow Christian Ottensmeier, who’s using the very latest DNA technology to develop treatments to ‘trick’ a patient’s immune system into destroying cancer cells. Plus our roving reporter Anna Lacey investigates a hot topic in science, uncovering the mystery of cancer stem cells.

Finally, CancerCampaigns Officer Elaine Londesborough reveals our new political campaign, aiming to keep tobacco “Out of Sight, Out of Mind”. And we celebrate twenty years of working in partnership with HBOS, one of the UK’s biggest banks.
