A quick look back at the best of The Oncology Journal Club in 2020!

To mark the end of a challenging year, Eva, Hans and Craig reflect on practice changing papers, their favourite interviews and highlight the quirkiest papers we’ve covered on the podcast in 2020. There’s also a reel of the funniest moments (Jeremy Shapiro Mankini? Baby Shark! What’s a Manel?)

We hope you enjoy this short 20 minute podcast to carry you through to 2021 with a few laughs.
