A Touch of Hysteria

5.0/5

Critic Rating

In this special pilot episode of Hysteria, a series about women navigating the healthcare system, storyteller Ann Kane connects us with a powerful cautionary tale about what happens when one women’s heart symptoms are dismissed, her concerns ignored. It’s a story of discrimination, terror, and ultimately, resilience. Ann also interviews a leading cardiologist who unpacks the built-in bias in the medical system, and examines the extent of what we know, what we don’t, and what we’re just now figuring out about women’s bodies, so that we can finally see past the stigma of hysteria.

"I can see why it won JAR Audio’s International Women’s Day Pilot Competition. It’s investigating the different ways that women’s experiences are downplayed and disregarded in the healthcare system...it was the production quality that really sold me on it. Host Ann Kane weaves the information and lived experiences together to guide listeners through each stage of understanding this issue."
