F Breast Cancer: F This Movie’s 18-Hour Podcast-A-Thon


Yeah, so, when I was dealing with my breast cancer surgeries and chemotherapy last year, one of the things that really helped me get through it was F This Movie.

F This Movie is a podcast in which host Patrick Bromley and one of the writers from, including Adam Riske, Health Holland, Doug Schultz, JB, Melissa Uhrin, Adam Thas, Michael Pomero, and Bromley’s wife, Erika, talk about movies. They are not movie snobs, though. It’s kinda like listening to your friends talk about movies, but smarter.

I listened to it while driving to and from the hospital. I listened to it in the waiting room while I waited for countless appointments. I listened to it while I got poked with needles and underwent many minor procedures. I listened to it when I was hospitalized for three days with a neutropenic fever. I listened to it while laying around on the couch after my mastectomy, my reconstruction surgery and chemotherapy appointments.


Here’s me listening to F This Movie last year while I’m waiting for my MRI.

I’m cancer free now, but I still listen to F This Movie every week. It’s my favorite podcast.

Without knowing it, F This Movie played a really important part in my breast cancer recovery. It kept me distracted when I needed it, which is why it’s so important for me to promote their fundraising event this Saturday.

F This Movie is holding an 18-hour podcast-a-thon on Saturday, July 9. It’s a fundraiser for The Magnolia Tree Foundation, a charity started by a friend of Bromley’s who passed away from breast cancer this year.

If you get a chance, you should listen. As someone who just started podcasting recently, I am in awe of an 18-hour podcast. Even if you can’t listen, I strongly encourage you to donate.

I'm a writer/podcaster/mother/goober in San Francisco who likes to drink beer, shop, laugh and make other people laugh, watch old movies, feed my unhealthy obsession with pop culture, kick breast cancer's ass, go on adventures with my mighty, mighty good man David and my awesome autistic son, Calvin, wear orange and root for the San Francisco Giants, participate in general jackass-ery, talk about TV, eavesdrop on strangers' conversations, make nerdy “Star Wars” and “Simpsons” references, and post personal things about myself on the web for all to read, which makes me some sort of literary exhibitionist.
