Emily sits down with Danielle Spencer to discuss her book Metagnosis: Revelatory Narratives of Health and Identity which, in identifying and naming the concept of "metagnosis," brings the study of healthcare into conversation with the discourse on identity. In doing so, this extraordinary new work in narrative medicine underscores the importance of narrative in healthcare in relation to concepts of self.

Hosted by Emily Silverman.

Produced by Emily Silverman and Adelaide Papazoglou.

Recorded by Jim Lively at Outpost Studios in San Francisco, and Walter Nordquist at Brooklyn Podcast Studios in New York.

Original Theme by Yosef Munro. Other music by Blue Dot Sessions.

The Nocturnists is made possible by the California Medical Association, the Patrick J. McGovern Foundation, and people like you who have donated through our website and Patreon page.
