    A three-part series from This American Life producer Nancy Updike. When Rachel McKibbens’s father and brother died suddenly last fall, two weeks apart, from Covid, she’d had no idea her father was sick, and no idea her brother was dying. They were unvaccinated, but the story of what happened started long before that. All three episodes of "We Were Three," a new show from Serial Productions and The New York Times, are available wherever you get your podcasts on Thursday, October 13th, 2022.

OCDellie ,

Yes! Where are the kids?

I also couldn’t keep my mind off the kids, especially the daughter she had in high school. Was the baby in the house when all the bad stuff was going on?

For why?

I don’t understand why I’m supposed to care about these people. I made it through the first episode, and half of the second, and stopped right when Rachel started describing having to be silent when her dad beat her. What a guy…? I’m very sorry for Rachel, and her resilience is admirable, but should I be moved by the fact that a horrible father fell into a Covid-paranoia hole and died as a result? I just don’t see the point of this podcast.
