With more and more people staying locked inside their homes these days, something interesting is happening. There’s a rise of digital content that is being created across all these social media platforms, be it Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, Twitch...you get the picture.

People need an outlet to connect to the world. Some have been creating content for as a while.

Today’s guest is a rising star in the world of ASMR who currently mainly broadcasts on Twitch and has already amassed over 26 thousand followers on that platform, and more than 14,000 on Instagram. Nina Swan joins us on today’s episode.

You can’t turn the corner without hearing about it, instilling fear and concern over anyone that hears its name — The coronavirus, or COVID-19 as public health officials call it. COVID-19 is responsible for thousands of deaths in China where the virus originated, and around the world, with the elderly and those with underlying health issues mostly at risk.

As the pandemic continues to spread, with growing numbers in the U.S., more and more employers are telling their domestic workers to stay home. On Friday, President Trump declared a national emergency over the coronavirus outbreak.

Now, it’s important to note that a heck of a lot of people that have been diagnosed with coronavirus have made a full recovery.

By no means do we have experts on the coronavirus on this show today but any factual information we quote will be from the CDC, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which you can visit for more information on COVID-19 at CDC.gov.

My guests today work in two different fields at this time and like many of us, myself included, have been directly impacted by the coronavirus fears blanketing America, particularly in Southern California. Claire is an Assignment Editor with CBS/KCAL in Los Angeles, and Kateri Wozni is a freelance reporter and Senior Technical Writer. We sit down and have an honest conversation and hopefully some comical relief that is badly needed in such turbulent times.

"Never knowing what’s we could get ourselves into gives us the adrenaline we need, we’ve been shot at, chased by gang members, and threatened with our lives, but we still have to document what goes on down there." These words from my guest today, Howard Raishbrook.

Howard runs the famed RMG News stringer service out of Los Angeles with his two brothers Austin and Marc.

RMG News supplies TV News stations in LA and around the globe with high-octane breaking news footage on a daily basis. With over 10 years of being in the news stringer business, Howard is constantly navigating the dangerous, unimaginable, miserable core of human suffering to expose such incredible images to the world, and in it, perhaps giving the world a hard look at itself that it needs to find the light.
