We Choose Our Own Families
Play • 57 min

This week, we take a deep dive into "Pose," Ryan Murphy's new show on FX, and unpack the role of queer chosen families in pop culture. We dissect some of our favorite scenes — featuring Blanca Abundance Evangelista (Mj Rodriguez), Elektra Abundance (Dominique Jackson), and Angel (Indya Moore) — and celebrate the nuanced stories told of queer and trans characters of color by queer and trans people of color. Are we free to create chosen families that support who we are and who we're trying to be, or are we destined to replicate the burdens and blessings of our biological families?

Discussed this week:

63| COVID-19: The Role of Neuropsychology – With Dr. Chaya Fridman
Emerging research suggests that a sizeable portion of individuals hospitalized due to COVID-19 develop cognitive and psychological sequelae. In our conversation with Dr. Chaya Fridman, a board-certified neuropsychologist at Cornell, we discuss the ways that SARS-CoV-2 (the virus that causes COVID-19) may lead to neurocognitive impairment, including both direct effects of the virus and secondary factors (e.g., respiratory distress and treatments used in the Intensive Care Unit). We review how the virus gains access to the central nervous system and the potential underlying mechanisms by which it causes an increased risk of stroke and other neurological issues. We also examine the long-term effects of prior coronaviruses (SARS-CoV and MERS-CoV) to attempt to forecast the long-term effects of COVID-19, with a focus on how neuropsychological practice (both inpatient and outpatient) might be affected.
