This is from a year ago. It was a talk with Helen, an MTA worker in NYC whose superiors at the time didn't think masks were necessary.
A year ago this was INSANE to me. That anyone would deny anyone a MASK or act as though a MASK was controversial.
And here we still are.
Helen is an MTA Conductor for the NYC Subway system, an organization that is losing 3-people per day to Covid-19. She and her co-workers requested masks in January and were denied. 50 of her fellow MTA workers died before masks were distributed.
We talked about fun things too, but I implore you to listen to Helen's story and remember that what you are seeing on the news is lacking in one thing: humanity. Support the show
