Celebrating Pride Online, and Easing Irrational Fears and Worries From The Pandemic

Will Black Lives Matter protests spur a second wave of coronavirus, Zoloft is in shortage due to increased demand during the pandemic, a new industry is forming around social distancing consultants, managing anxiety about the country reopening, and should you worry about catching coronavirus through your eyes.


We’ll also hear a snippet from a conversation with Dr. Roger Hall, author of Staying Happy Being Productive, who recently joined Dr. Holly Lucille on her RadioMD Podcast Mindful Medicine to share tips for easing some of the irrational fears and worries impacting us during the pandemic.

We also talk to Singer and activist Teraj talking about celebrating Pride month in quarantine.

Our Healthcare Hero today is Jeanna Barbieri, a nurse working at Lowell General Hospital in Massachusetts. In addition to her duties providing medical care, she has been helping COVID-19 patients cope with loneliness and a no-visitor policy by helping to keep patients' spirits up - including decorating rooms with family photos through her project, Pictures for Patients.

Those with loved ones being treated at Lowell General Hospital who need a pick-me-up can submit a request to This email address is being protected from spambots.

All of the money raised is going directly to supplies for the project, and she says any that is left over will be donated to random acts of kindness through her community.

Our show is now a weekly production, with new episodes coming out every Wednesday afternoon.
