Summer Friends | sum‧mer frends |
Friends whose lives intersect over a shared season and place.

The Summer Friends podcast is a regular conversation hosted by Nate Loucks. A summer friend is a person whose life intersects with your own for a brief season. Summer friends never have a permanent presence, but they often leave a lasting impression.

Each episode will be equal parts storytelling, interview, and education.

Let's be friends, even for just this season.

The Summer Friends Podcast | Cathy & Ben Braden


On today’s episode we have not just one guest, but two. Kathy & Ben Braden sat down with me about a month ago to talk about their life. The Bradens are the founders of the, which they started after battling cancer with their 2-year old daughter.

We talked about childhood cancer (specifically hepatoblastoma), what to do when someone you love is hurting, education, and where this couple finds hope. I enjoyed talking with Ben and Cathy. I hope you enjoy listening.
