In Sickness + In Health
About This Show
In Sickness + In Health is a podcast, hosted by Cara Gael, about our relationships with our bodies, and issues at the intersections with chronic illness, disability, healthcare, and mortality. We hope that by talking about these issues we can help to normalize them, reduce the stigma, and help all of us to feel a little less alone, and a lot more comfortable talking about it.

Regular guest, Christopher Snider, joins me again to talk more about our dystopian reality, developments since we last recorded in November, self-care and escapism (I Love Lucy! Doctor Who! Chewing Gum! Crocheting!), and weaponized information in the age of Trump. Plus: more information on how to participate remotely in the Women's Marches.
Our conversation begins ~20:00.

A podcast worth your time!
As the primary caregiver of my chronically ill sibling, the In Sickness and In Health Podcast has proved to be extremely compelling listening for us both – alternatingly fascinating, comforting and disturbing. Even-handed host Cara Gael has selected intelligent, articulate, good-natured guests to lead her listeners through the tangled (and hugely unfortunate) web of their erratic health conditions, interactions with practitioners, encounters with bureaucratic red tape, etc. and the mental, emotional and physical toll all of that takes (literally takes – steals) from their once promising lives. It's not fun listening, but it is enlightening and important. This often invisible segment of our population needs their predicaments to be, at the very least, acknowledged. I mightily appreciate that Cara is using some of her precious energy to create and sustain this stellar podcast. She is, I hope, making a lasting contribution to our society that will serve to elevate the levels of awareness, compassion and advocacy regarding the challenges faced by the disabled, chronically and terminally ill, and their caregivers.
