    Welcome to How to Survive This! Today's guest is Stephen Beach, a writer and high school teacher living in the DFW metroplex. 

    In this special, extra-long episode, you will hear two interviews with Stephen - one from May 8, 2020, near the beginning of the pandemic, and another from July 6, 2020, after he and his wife Cortney tested positive for COVID-19. In both interviews, Stephen shares his hope for the future, his desperation for others in the community to take the threat of C19 seriously, and the purpose he has found in his relationships with his students.
