Ep. 10: Germs

Lisa and Aimee reflect on their lifelong aversion to germs in the context of the pandemic, with help from writer A.J. Jacobs

April 7, 2021

This week, Lisa and Aimee consider the years they spent freaking out about germs before the COVID pandemic had everyone stockpiling Purell, and how their behavior—and their rationalization of it—has changed in the past year.

They’re joined by A.J. Jacobs, who’s written about overcoming his own germaphobia, and who offers all sorts of insights into how we can all be less consumed by germs in our daily lives, even during a pandemic.
