A Pandemic Podcast
Welcome to a new project by some creative, caring, and inspiring people from New Brunswick.
A Pandemic Podcast is a space that discusses the ongoing global pandemic from a provincial and national lens. Guests share their perspectives from a variety of backgrounds including education, engineering, information science, and more in round table discussions to bring greater understanding to current research, best practices, and community care.
Episode 1- Not a 'Post-Pandemic' World
Meet three people who acknowledge we are still living in a pandemic and are taking steps and actions to ensure their safety. Chris, Kay, and Cheryl talk about their backgrounds, what brought them here, current work in regards to information dissemination and health advocacy, and next steps and future episodes.
Episode 2- Right to Know
Cheryl, Chris, and Kay discuss the current PoPNB (Protect our Province New Brunswick) Right to Information request about Long Covid. 733 pages of government documents are now available and it is shocking, heartbreaking, and infuriating to read and understand the wealth of high quality information that has been internally known since as early as July 2020. Provincial governments across Canada have been receiving ongoing communication about the harms of Long Covid and many have chosen to not share ANY of this information with healthcare workers or the general population. To read the documents yourself, please visit the PoPNB Substack article.
Episode 3- Healthy Holidays
The weather is getting colder, which has a big impact when there is an airborne pandemic happening. Windows with clean air ventilation close and people begin to gather indoors. And on top of that, December can be the time of traditional holiday gatherings for families and friends- sharing space and meals. But! You don’t have to share illness. Episode 3 is our holiday gift to you- resources, finding safe spaces to gather, understanding CO2 in the air and sharing air with others, and why we need to continue protecting our health- this pandemic has now become a ‘triple-demic’ with COVID, RSV, and Influenza A and B in the air. Now is a great time to stay safe. And we have doctors and resources to back that up!
