The Journey Radio

THE JOURNEY Radio is the world’s first Palliative Care podcast. Join Deanna Cochran as she interviews physicians, healers, local heroes and a variety of people on the path of assisting people with serious illness or who are or have dealt with it.

The show is not about the outcome of the illness, but about the journey … about living in the day as peacefully and comfortably as possible.
