I had an eventful May 14. I woke up in the morning and read five messages from friends on my phone telling me that Angelina Jolie had announced her prophylactic mastectomy in a New York Times op-ed. I’d thought it would be just a normal day of reporting my forthcoming book Pandora’s DNA: How the breast cancer gene changed everything, but by evening I’d done several video appearances, ending up on All In with Chris Hayes (above). I also wrote about the public and media reaction to Jolie’s mastectomy for Today and Slutist, and appeared on CBS2 New York and a Japanese morning show.
