Your host is Sharon Tewksbury-Bloom, a career do-gooder, who also loves craft beer and a good hard tackle in rugby. Sharon speaks to everyday people about why they do good and what it means to be good. 00:26 Sharon Tewksbury-Bloom: Hello, I’m your host, Sharon Tewksbury-Bloom. I hope this finds you safe and well.

I don’t really go there but I’ve been going to the Woods the whole time, because I like the Woods. I’ve had groceries delivered, I’ve gone down to the grocery store. I went once on March 15th, right before we started staying home, and then I went once on Friday, ’cause I had to get a prescription that they wouldn’t mail, but I wore a bandana. Yeah, mostly just… I was in India when it started, in the beginning of February, when people were just starting to talk about it a lot, I was flying to India.
