Our MBC Life

Lisa Laudico, Victoria Goldberg, Natalia Green

“Launched in July 2020 by myself [Lisa Laudico] along with a small group of individuals living with metastatic breast cancer, MBC Life provides the stories and critical information needed by others also living with this disease.  We highlight the experts (oncologists and researchers) who help make our lives better.

“While the podcast is supported by SHARE Cancer Support, it continues to be hosted, edited, and produced by those living with MBC. In other words, this podcast is completely in the control of the patient community we serve.”

06880: The Podcast

Dan Woog

“My podcast is an extension of my blog, “Where Westport Meets the World.” They’re casual conversations with some of the most interesting people from every niche of Westport. The only requirement is that they be intriguing, fun, and able to hold up their end of a conversation.

"Each chat is different and unscripted. But there are some themes: What got you to Westport? What kept you here? How did you become the person you are? What’s your life like, professionally and personally? How does it fit into the life of this town? What’s ahead, for you and for all of us?”
