A perfectly formed wee diamond of an episode featuring response and analysis from someone who knows what it’s like at the sharp end of working with viruses in a laboratory setting.

Danabhadri is our guest today, helping us move past the clinical language of “quarantines” and “isolation” towards a practical experience of interconnectedness. Evoking beautifully why that matters, she says:

“The virus is not the monster from the deep. It evolved on this planet the same way we did.” 

Hers is an urgent, challenging, ultimately empathetic perspective that embraces seeing our species as interdependent in ways that can mean we as individuals take a step away from horrified anxiety, opening up to a positive relationship to mortality itself.
