We’re usually all about curiosity and fun facts and armchair travel and great books on our podcast. But in this mini-episode, we take a few minutes to talk about the impact of the coronavirus pandemic and give you a brief update on how things are in our home.
We’re both healthy, although a bit sadder than usual. We’re extending all our empathy to you and yours — and hoping with our whole hearts that you’re all healthy and safe.
We also want to shout out very loud thank you messages to all of the people who continue to work so that the rest of us can stay safe at home. To healthcare workers, grocery store staff, delivery people, sanitation teams, truckers, and everyone else who is making sure the services we rely keep functioning, our deepest gratitude.
And to you, thank you for listening. We’re grateful to have you with us.
