    Ep 63 | Physical Distancing while Maintaining Emotional Proximity

    Join Dr. Zuhdi Jasser as he takes a rare, deeper look into the toughest questions during this Coronavirus pandemic. Okay, yes, we need to have some sort of physical distancing for a period, but now more than ever we need emotional and social proximity, support, and cohesion. What can we learn as a society during this time about the ideas, culture, and principles that keep us united and keep us close as Americans? Also, why do media pundits intentionally misreport what numbers actually mean when it comes to this pandemic? There is a malignancy of division that stifles any learning and community growth. Last, Dr. Jasser shares his expertise on some of the ethical dilemmas and controversies related to rationing care in a pandemic and in healthcare institutions overwhelmed with more demand than supply.

    Ep 62 | Proportionality or Pandering in a Pandemic

    Ep 62 | Proportionality or Pandering in a Pandemic

    Don't miss this episode as Zuhdi takes on the, so far relatively unsaid, ethical dilemmas inherent in every collective decision our society and our leadership makes. These decisions cannot be made for us in a vacuum and they need to be proportional to all of our other acute and chronic medical, economic, psychological, and community needs. This is not about the short term just 1 or 2 week shutdown (that's immediately rational), but it is unfathomable how little conversation there has been so far about the rationality of the longer proposed shutdown of America's economic jugular. Is it appropriate when weighed against actual lives at risk? Lives are at stake any way you look at it. The extremist narrative approach on either side of this pandemic is incompatible with how we live every other aspects of our lives. Dr. Jasser calls upon a coalition of rational doctors and all Americans to have a real conversation about the decisions we are hurtling through as a nation.
