Aimee and Lisa are anxious: about germs, about mortality, about the state of the world (and things far less serious, too). Each week they grapple with one of their anxieties, from the trivial to the existential, in a humorous and heartfelt way. They're helped along by smart and entertaining guests like Simon Doonan and Anne Roiphe, who offer advice—and some homework!—for our hosts to overcome their various anxieties.

This week, Lisa and Aimee are anxious about COVID—about protecting themselves and their loved ones from the virus, of course, but also about navigating a world where every encounter is a potential vector for transmission.

To answer these questions and more, they’re joined by Australian philosopher Ben Bramble, who published Pandemic Ethics: 8 Big Questions of COVID-19.
