    COVID19 Long-haulers with Nathan Lents

    COVID19 Long-haulers with Nathan Lents

    This will be the third visit with scientist and genetics expert -- Nathan Lents. We focused our conversation on the nature of the "long-haul" maladies of those who have had the COVID19 virus. These serious health outcomes are known to effect even those who did not manifest the disease. And we talked to Dr. Lents about the new approach to viral vaccines using the mRNA technique.
    We also talked to two COVID19 survivors about their experience during and after contracting the infection. Believe it or Not - this thing is serious.

    Expat Poets from Hispaniola: Rhina P. Espaillat & Jean Dany Joachim

    We were joined by two world-class poets from Hispaniola -- Jean Dany Joachim writes in Haitian Creole and Spanish poet Rhina P. Espaillat who left the Dominican Republic as a young girl fleeing the Trujillo massacre of 1937. Their poetry cuts to the bone of the immigrant experience in simple but deeply revealing ways. This episode is a lively conversation with lovely people who interpret their poetry in most accessible performances.

    A Joyous Sound on the Upper West Side

    A Joyous Sound on the Upper West Side

    It was the day when we learned that the Biden/Harris ticket had won the Presidential election, and the sounds of elation and joy rose in the street outside our Upper West Side apartment windows. We ran down to West End Avenue with our equipment and quickly set-up to get some testimony from our neighbors about how they were feeling. Up the street 150 people had filled the street and were dancing and yelling as passing cars honked on W. 93rd Street. We could breathe and the unifying breath was saying, "Let the healing begin."

    Buggin' with Rebecca & Alan @ Gebhards

    Buggin' with Rebecca & Alan @ Gebhards

    Rebecca and Alan are back at their favorite bar -- Matt Gebhard's Beer Culture Bar on the Upper West Side on W. 72nd Street. It was really good to be back on our old turf recording Bar Crawl Radio. The episode honed in on the behaviors and sounds and bugs that bug us. It was loud and a bit smelly from the fumes on the busy bus-strewned street -- but we had a great time sitting at a real bar and recording our silliness. Contact us at barcrawlradio@gmail.com
