Transmission No. 3: Sound Effect, Episode 209

Adrian Florez

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 podcast called Transmission. Today on Sound Effect, we share some more stories that have stood out to us from the series.

First, we meet Dr. Julian Perez, a doctor in Seattle’s White Center neighborhood who has firsthand experience dealing with Latino patients disproportionately affected by COVID-19. Then, storyteller Mary Anne Moorman shares a story about her grandmother who died during the 1918 flu pandemic — in the arms of her best friend, a daughter of former slaves. We meet Dr. Micheal Kane, a Black therapist who is spending about 50 hours a week helping clients work through the trauma of being Black in America. And we hear how KNKX’s Kari Plog and her husband are planning for the future in the face of overwhelming uncertainty
