This is NSPR’s weekday show about the local and regional effects of COVID-19 in the North State. Listen each weekday at 6:30 p.m. and 8:30 a.m. NSPR will continue this special coverage as long as our community needs it. Our mission with this show is to provide accurate news and information about COVID-19 for the North State.
Today we’re taking a deep dive into isolation — what does it do to the human brain and what can you learn from people who’ve undergone isolation before?
For those experiences, we’re turning to an astronaut who was in space for more than nine months, a reporter who chose to be alone in a cabin for half a year and a woman who endured a serious illness that confined her to her bed and forced her to reflect on how she lived her life. To make sense of it all, we’ll also hear from a clinical psychologist.
As always if you have questions or comments for us call us on our message line 433-9216 or visit our website mynspr.org.
For Friday, May 1st, 2020 This is special coverage from North State Public Radio.
