Episode Description

Sometimes you have to run far, far away to find your way home. Recently wed—and quickly divorced—twenty-four-year-old Sarah Coomber escapes the disappointments of her Minnesota life for a job teaching English in Japan. What she finds when she gets there is far from what she expected, but it just might be exactly what she needs. Cynthia Brian interviews Sarah about her memoir, The Same Moon. Many of us have sheltered-in-place for more than three months. People are dealing with social isolation, anxiety about health, and financial worries. What have been the mental and emotional effects of living with the threat of Covid-19. Go ahead and share your sadness about what you miss. It will unburden and free you. The media compares the Covid-19 crisis to the Spanish Flu Epidemic of 1918. A Time Magazine article linked it more to the the beginning of the 1916 polio epidemic that preferred the hot months of summer to inflict its havoc. A vaccine wasn’t successful for polio until 39 years later
