Caroline and Raymond (and an awkward little-sounding voice) say goodbye to Season One.  Our cohosts give updates on their personal Covid stories, tell us about what's coming up in Season Two (launching March 9th, 2021), and why this shift has them excited and not fatigued.

In just 3 months, we've built out a one-stop-shop website and social media pages and Fatigued Podcast has reached thousands of listeners across every podc...

This is our final interview for Season 1 and it's our biggest one to date: we got a chance to interview Dr. Keith Gagnon, an associate professor of chemistry and biochemistry at SIU whose lab has uncovered a U.S.-specific coronavirus variant that accounts for about half of the cases in the nation! He has been featured on many major news outlets as more information about this mutation is uncovered. We were so honored he took tim...

We can all agree we're in need of a feel-good story right now, so meet Harriet! She has been dedicating her time and energy to helping elderly people navigate the world of technology so they can receive the vaccine. "Anybody would do the same when you hear the people on the other line," she says. From family to strangers, she's helped so many get access to the information they need so they aren't left behind. Sh...

This week we got to interview Dr. Erik, an anesthesiologist who was deployed in the Middle East when the pandemic broke out last March. His deployment had already come to a close but he was detained for a few more weeks before he was allowed to come back to the States. He's grateful to be reunited with his family again and we spoke and mused about many different topics like healthcare accessibility, Covid bubbles, and the relia...

After months of devastating loss, Louis said "fuck it" (literally) and enrolled himself in the Pfizer vaccine trial. Louis, a self-described "big ol' meat shield," was more than happy to take this risk, especially because he knows we aren't going to get anywhere with this virus until we start finding some answers. He goes into detail about why he chose to participate, how it went, and what happened after inj...

Last March Maria spent nineteen days in the hospital with COVID-induced double pneumonia. Can you even imagine? From the CPAP machine to rash and bed rest, she experienced the full gamut. We are so lucky she lived to tell the tale, no matter how gruesome it may be. We're even luckier she was so sunny and sweet at 6 in the morning when we captured this conversation...oh wait, it was six OUR time, 2 in the afternoon her time. Ohh...

Rob is immunocompromised and lives with his family of nine... so how does he keep himself safe around so many people when a pandemic rages across the country? Well... he made the hard and necessary decision to move away from his family and into his own apartment until this thing is over. "I have a big family and I intend to be here a very long time for them." He's a shining example of sacrifice, hard work, and love.

While she has many stories to share, she admits it's something she never wants to do again -- and after hearing those stories we T...

TW: death

Over the holidays we interviewed Caroline's dad, an essential worker, who has seen some…pretty devastating events. The audio isn’t perfect, it’s a shorter episode than usual, but it’s a story we felt was necessary to share. As we enter a new year and reflect on 2020, we feel it is important to remember the lives lost in the pandemic - not as a statistic, but as people. 

In this episode we bridge the gap between anecdota...

This episode is for big and small kids alike who are wondering if co-ho-ho-hovid can stop Santa. We got a hold of the Big Guy himself - Santa Claus - a week before Christmas to talk about how coronavirus has impacted life up at the North Pole. This is our first (and probably only) kid-friendly episode, but if you're an adult in need of a little holiday spirit we think it might be for you too :)

Special thanks to Ben Jeffrey for ...

This virus is so tricky - it can manifest itself in vastly different ways. Even to a set of identical twin brothers and their mother! Speaking to Ryan and Linda was an absolute delight this week - even though their cases were anything but delightful. They gave us some insight on what kept them going during their darkest days, what it's like losing your taste and smell for 2+ months (!), and what the early days of the pandem...
