So grateful to have found this podcast! I’ve been listening to it since the beginning, after hearing an interview with Jim on the Brian Lehrer show. The Social Distance podcast has been a bit of stable ground beneath my feet amid all the chaos.
Jim and Katherine have struck such a perfect balance between a conversational, real-talk kind of vibe, while also delivering really thought-provoking, evidence-based information! They’re great at distilling complicated concepts into digestible, easy-to-process bites. It’s been so reassuring to have y’all to turn to for the facts - both what’s known and what’s unknown, about the developments of this pandemic, at the same time it’s all going down. While the White House has been putting out nothing but misinformation, you’ve been a beacon in the dark!
I also really appreciate the wholistic discussion, expanding beyond medical/science, to also address the collateral damage and give voice to the marginalized folks suffering the most during these times. Acknowledging the sociopolitical factors that are at play and providing context for them. Thank you, Jim and Katherine! It’s been valuable.
