This episode, I talk about the novel coronavirus, COVID-19. I share how our privilege and ignorance has led us where we are today, why we may be past the point of containment, why getting rid of wet markets is not the solution, addressing xenophobia, and advice on how to cope with emotions during this time.

This episode, we’re going to chat about the coronavirus. I talk about: - The clear warnings that were left ignored by Asia and Italy. - How our American privilege has led us to where we are today. - Why focusing on the numbers should not be our main priority - Why getting rid of wet markets is not the solution. - Global xenophobia spurred by this pandemic. - How to deal with racism and prejudice during this time. - Some advice on how to cope and manage emotions.   Resources:
