In the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic, we take a time out from our regular podcast schedule to talk about how we’re coping (and not), how we’re stayed connected with ourselves and one another in the age of physical distancing, and how we’re more committed than ever to dismantling the patriarchy.
What We’re Reading and Listening to
Katey’s Pick: Watching Love is Blind on Netflix. (Don’t judge!)
If you love a good drama-filled reality show, you’ll probably love this one. If not, you can hate watch it and probably enjoy that too.
Ashley’s Pick: Listening to Dying for Sex.
It’s about a woman who is diagnosed with terminal cancer, leaves her already troubled marriage, and decides to spend the time she has left exploring her sexuality. But it’s about way more than sex. It’s about life, friendship, love, and how we face the end of our lives.
Kindreds of the Moment: The human spirit and our collective resilience
Ashley brought it y’all:
There isn’t one person who is going to save us from this pandemic, or who’s going to eradicate poverty and inequality, or who’s going to stop climate change. We have to stop looking for saviors – in politics, in business, or in faith.
So today I want to recognize the divine spirit in all of us- the healthcare workers all over the world on the front lines of fighting the spread of coronavirus, the families inside their homes practicing social distancing to protect others, the Italians singing from their balconies to remind themselves and their neighbors that we’re in this together. This is holy work, every bit of it. And as we say in the social justice world, this work isn’t a sprint, or even a marathon. It’s a relay. We all do our part when we take the baton, we do our best with it, and then we hand it to the next person, every leg of the journey getting a little bit closer in creating the world we want to live in. On Earth, as it is in Heaven.
