Episode 3: COVID: Does Race = Risk?

"Every day, cities and states are breaking records for COVID cases. Governments are scrambling to take the right measures at the right times. And the news is reporting all of it. But some of us still seem unaffected. Why is this? What will make us stop and think? Or, at the least, feel something? This week's episode of Contakt World dives into the hot-button issues of race, privilege, and the politics of health - specifically, through the lens of Fiana Tulip, a grieving daughter who lost her mother, a Latina front-line worker in Texas. As the vaccine rolls out, and we turn the page to a new year, we'll talk about how the front line isn't just made up of medical workers; it also comprises marginalized individuals. We'll also discuss how we can do more to resource health agencies, help workers get proper protection (like hazard pay), and, most importantly, ways we can help each other through this pandemic."

"Contakt World: Truth in Health" is distributed by the iHeartPodcast Network and is also available on Apple and Spotify. For video previews, highlights, and full-length episodes, please visit Contakt World on YouTube.
