  • Motivation Monday: What are Your Podcast Recommendations for Lockdown?

    Hey everyone! Hope you all had a safe and relaxing weekend.

    So since we’re all stuck at home right now, I was wondering if anyone had any good podcast recommendations. Since I work from home anyway, I listen to a lot of podcasts during the day. My favorite is called Beautiful Anonymous, a conversational show hosted by comedian Chris Gethard. This one is a great mix of human interest stories. Some episodes are hilarious, while others are more emotional and moving.

    I also listen to a lot of pop-culture podcasts, and a history show called Our Fake History. In that one, host Sebastian Major breaks down historical myths like Atlantis, and looks at what’s real and what isn’t. It’s perfect for nerds like me.

    Who here is a podcast connoisseur? Do you have any recommendations?

    What about a podcast on access to hospital care, including ventilated care for people with SMA?

    Some areas are putting protocols in place which would put us low on the list for interventions if hospitals were short of space or equipment due to COVID-19. Our family members who help us may not be allowed to be in the hospital with us to visit/provide care.

    What is the situation? Who is doing what? What should we be doing?

    See Alice Wong’s article and this article in The Mighty about ableism and how dangerous those attitudes are.
