Caroline Amos:

Hey, this is Caroline Amos.

Raymond McAnally:

And this is Raymond McAnally.

Caroline Amos:

We're the hosts of fatigue -

Raymond McAnally:

fatigued (laughs) In short, we both had COVID.

Caroline Amos:

And we became very, very fascinated by it.

Raymond McAnally:

And we've been talking to other people whose lives have been affected by the pandemic like, I don't know, everybody in the whole world.

Caroline Amos:

Yeah, no kidding.

Raymond McAnally:

From patients to paramedics to long haulers to lessons learned.

Caroline Amos:

Yeah, I mean, it's the same virus. But everybody's story is completely different.

Raymond McAnally:

Each week, we've set out to talk to a different person and learn about their story. So far, we've spoken to an OB GYN, a lawyer who has worked with the FDA,

Caroline Amos:

a funeral home worker who's in the middle of getting her degree, college dorm supervisors who are responsible for packing up other students belongings and mailing them to them once their school shut down over the course of the pandemic -

Raymond McAnally:

including their dildos,

Caroline Amos:

including their dildos, that's Episode Six, you're definitely gonna want to tune in for that. We've interviewed my dad who works in hospitals and has seen some stuff. We've interviewed our friend who has had to separate himself from his family because he has an autoimmune disorder.

Raymond McAnally:

We've interviewed a paramedic whose first save turned out to be a COVID positive patient.

Caroline Amos:

We've interviewed a mom that her two twin sons trying to escape New York in the first week of pandemic hinterland, they hopped on a plane with active cases. Heck, we've even interviewed Santa Claus.

Raymond McAnally:

We interviewed a woman who was hospitalized in London for 19 days, and even shared with us her x rays before and after. We interviewed a guy who was so willing to put his body on the line to help move the pandemic forward and out of our lives that he became a Pfizer vaccine trial participant. We've interviewed a doctor who was deployed, and then had to come home and start a civilian practice in the middle of the pandemic. We've interviewed someone who has been volunteering her time to help senior citizens and anyone who can't navigate the internet, get vaccines in New York City.

Caroline Amos:

I think our most fun and exciting interview yet has been with Dr. Keith gagnant, who discovered the COVID mutant variation that has been cropping up all over the United States of America. And he was surprisingly optimistic, wonderful, realistic, and put a lot of our fears at ease.

Raymond McAnally:

We've had listeners tell us that once they're done with these conversations, listening to each episode that they do feel hope they also feel better informed. That's what we're going for. Now that we've hit the one year anniversary of the pandemic, we're beginning season two, and there are so many great things in store. We have new cover art, a fascinating series on parosmia and phatosmia I bet you don't e en know what those are, and m re check ins with our doctor f iends who can give you a b tter idea of what's happening w th this pesky mutation.
