Stolen Goodbyes

A health podcast from Karen Rice

Welcome to Stolen Goodbyes with Karen Rice, foreign affairs journalist and podcaster. 
Each week inspiring wives, husbands, partners, children and newly weds intimately recount the shock and anguish of death without warning to COVID 19 whilst never having the chance to say goodbye. 
Forced to grieve in isolation, they detail needless mistakes and decisions that cost lives including patients being placed on Covid hospital wards when they were Covid free or others condemned to an early death by the secret use of Do Not Resuscitate forms. Some were left to die alone, the ultimate social taboo. 
This global podcast is a social history record of the wide spread suffering caused by the Corona virus pandemic of 2020, an infection that changed the world as we know it. 
The participants of this podcast have bared their souls in a bid to stop their loved ones being written off as just another statistic when they were much loved individuals whose premature deaths could help to save others from the same fate while holding those responsible to account.   See for privacy and opt-out information.
