We have all been dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic in our own ways. And the Sound Effect team has been doing our best to cover it in a new podcast called Transmission. Today on Sound Effect, we share some of the stories that have stood out to us from the podcast so far.

First, we’ll meet a chef who has been riding around Tacoma on his bike yelling at people’s houses. Then, we get a blow-by-blow look at how the novel coronavirus takes over our cells. A repurposed mammogram van administers coronavirus tests to vulnerable populations. We meet a woman who had to postpone her cancer surgery as her hospital prepared for a surge in COVID-19 patients. And finally, we get an intimate look at a daughter’s final goodbye with her mother, from a distance, thanks to a nurse and her personal cellphone.

Be sure to subscribe to both our podcasts, Sound Effect and Transmission. They are available wherever you get your podcasts. And please be sure to rate and review them.
