These Podcasts Keep You Up to Date on Coronavirus | askmen
I’m a podcast listener — a big one. Seriously, the only time I seem to listen to music anymore is on my runs throughout the week, and even then, sometimes I swap out my 165-BPM playlist for a new podcast or one I’ve been meaning to catch up on.
So naturally, now that we are really starting to get some information about the new coronavirus (COVID-19) taking the world by storm, I needed to know where in the podcast world could I find solid, reliable, trustworthy and, most importantly, accurate information.
I hate to break it to you guys, but our Commander in Chief and his administration have really dropped the ball on this one by providing false or misleading information about the coronavirus on more than one occasion, and have left a lot of us wondering what to believe and what to ignore. Listen, our personal politics aside, there was always going to be more we could do when it came to something of the truly awesome magnitude of this global pandemic. Hindsight is 20/20, right?
But now is not the time to fear monger or panic. It’s time to #FlattenTheCurve by putting into practice the new term du jour: Social Distancing. Social distancing isn’t quarantining yourself in your home for weeks on end — it’s simply applying best practices to mitigate the spread of a virus that is already running rampant, killing over 6,700 people worldwide at the time of this reporting.
We owe it to ourselves to be smart, listen to accurate information and be empathetic to those around us. Is your head spinning a bit from all this information? I feel you; mine is too. So that’s why I picked out my top picks for the best coronavirus podcasts to listen to right now. Some are all coronavirus, all the time, and some just have expert reporting on the pandemic just about every episode. Either way, listen to one or more of these, and you should know all you need to know about COVID-19.
