We are thrilled to welcome a very special guest to the graphic medicine podcast. Wendy MacNaughton is a graphic journalist and social worker. If the name doesn’t instantly ring a bell for you, once you see her signature loose yet also perfect water colors, you will realize you already know her work.
Wendy is joining me on the podcast today to talk about her latest book, How to Say Goodbye, which Atul Gawande describes on the cover quote as, “A poem to mortality and the beauty of how we can cope with it.”
In this wide-ranging conversation, MK speaks with Wendy MacNaughton about her work as a social worker and graphic journalist, as well as her book How to Say Goodbye. Also drawing, connecting humans, drawing the dying, and much more.
