She shares the funniest and most touching details with her closest friend, host Nikki Boyer. As they peel back the layers, we learn that Molly isn’t just grappling with breast cancer: she's also dealing with some trauma from her past.

Our Editor's Take

Wondery's Dying for Sex podcast is a mesmerizing new take on illness. Podcast host Nikki Boyer (from TLC's Perfect Proposal) tells the true story of one of her best friends, Molly. After receiving a cancer diagnosis, Molly sets out to live her life to the fullest. Boyer recounts Molly's story in gripping and engaging episodes. Dying For Sex explores every stage of Molly's reaction, adventures, and illness.

After she hears her cancer diagnosis, Molly decides to change the trajectory of her life's story in radical ways. This podcast sees Molly sitting in a clinic, waiting to receive news no one wants to hear. What's her reaction? Molly engages in raunchy "sexcapades" in the back seat of a car. The bad news seems to put her in touch with a wild side that no one knew about. Dying For Sex documents everything from harsh cancer treatments to thrilling erotic adventures.

Boyer helps Molly recount her steamy stories. The host chimes in with dark humor and support when the narration gets tough. If listeners are looking for a serious yet suggestive podcast, Dying for Sex delivers. It's essential for anyone who wants to hear a different take on the challenging topic of cancer care.
