Doriana is a scientist and she’s working in a lab with corona virus. This is a rare insight into what it’s like being in close proximity to such a dangerous virus and how it's affecting her and her loved ones mentally and emotionally.
In this episode we hear from Jim, an ER doctor in California. He talks about his own, unorthodox, route into medicine, what it’s like treating those with COVID and one patient’s miraculous recovery. It feels like an opportunity to reflect on the good experiences along side the terrible ones that you may have faced during the global pandemic.
In this episode Ermis reflects on his autism and his experiences of working during the crisis. He discusses his two extremes of emotion, why he is enjoying the lockdown, and simultaneously why he is scared. He leaves us wondering how others are really coping and how our interactions may affect them.
In this episode we hear from Haley in her tiny apartment in New York City which is the epicentre of the pandemic in the USA. She talks about her fears for her family, lets us in on the naughtiest thing she’s done since lock-down and shares her recent loss and how that is making this time much more painful.
What interesting engaging conversation ...
....thoroughly enjoyable listen. You wouldn’t have a clue that Sally is a novice podcast host, until she mentioned towards the end. Very smooth, relaxed yet engaging questioning 👌🏼 I’ll definitely listen to more.
Haley and Sally
I just had the honour of listening to Haley’s interview from Sally Bibb’s podcast. Incredible, honest and completely reflects how I have dealt with similar journeys this last year- VULNERABILITY IS STRENGTH. So rewarding to recognise similarities in life, resilience, age, diversity, courage, and learn from the openness Haley shared. Continue your journey Haley, you are an inspiration to your community and society. A neighbour can be an ocean, continent apart, it’s the opportunity to share and learn, that gives me purpose in life. Thank you so much. Salma xx
Sally Bibb offers us new perspectives from others out there, also living through lockdown. Sally creates a safe space for her interviewees to be able to share their thoughts and feelings openheartedly. This feels a rare opportunity to listen into others’ reflections. Looking forward to the next in the series!
