In this week’s episode of The Adelaide Show, we reflect on the panic around the COVID-19 pandemic and how to navigate the information in an evidence-based way.

Our return panellists are Nigel Dobson and Robert Godden. Yes, forgive the hasty Photoshop botch job, we just wanted to rush this episode out.

This week, the SA Drink Of The Week is from Iniquity.

And in the Musical Pilgrimage, we hear a new song from Loren Kate.

For many Australians, the closest we get to seeing bare shelves in supermarkets is just before a long weekend. But during the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have seen shelves stripped bare of some essentials and even toilet paper. How do we temper our responses, especially as many small businesses and people in entertainment, hospitality, and food lose income immediately? And how do we sort out the hype from the truth? To answer these questions and more, we have cognitive scientist and long time presenter of The Adelaide Show, Nigel Dobson, and our go to social and political commentator, Robert Godden.

There are three main things I would like us to cover today.

1. How to put COVID-19 into perspective, given we hear mixed messages. How bad is this virus, how long will isolation be, what impacts are coming?

2. How do you prepare for extended periods of isolation?

3. How do we care for those around us?

No video this week.

SFX: Throughout the podcast we use free sfx from freesfx.co.uk for the harp, the visa stamp, the silent movie music, the stylus, the radio signal sfx, the wine pouring and cork pulling sfx, and the swooshes around Siri.
