Dispatch 6: Strange Times

Released Friday, 29th May 2020

Covid has disrupted the most basic routines of our days and nights. But in the middle of a conversation about how to fight the virus, we find a place impervious to the stalled plans and frenetic demands of the outside world. It’s a very different kind of front line, where urgent work means moving slow, and time is marked out in tiny pre-planned steps. Then, on a walk through the woods, we consider how the tempo of our lives affects our minds and discover how the beats of biology shape our bodies.

This episode was produced with help from Molly Webster and Tracie Hunte.

I could have spent an hour inside Vanderbilt University Medical Center’s COVID-19 bio-safety lab with the technician describing her work. That ten minutes was the whole episode, everything else was so much less good.
