Side Effects: A COVID-19 Diary

A society podcast from FX Media

Essential workers, doctors, community leaders, furloughed employees…we know they’ve been impacted, but what’s their full story?

Side Effects takes a deep, personal look into the sweeping effects of COVID-19 — by following six individuals, week-to-week, as the pandemic unfolds. Each episode presents their individual journeys as they navigate changes in their lives.

Hosted by Catherine and Nancy Xu. Subscribe and follow us @sideeffectspod to get the latest updates.
