The Mask Podcast

We started this podcast to share stories from both the people on the frontlines and behind the scenes of the COVID-19 pandemic. We speak anonymously to first responders, medical professionals, scientists, police officers, hospital custodians, and many more to learn what it’s really like to face this invisible enemy. By telling their personal stories, we hope to inspire our listeners to effect positive change during this horrible epidemic, now and in the future. This podcast, created by frequent collaborators and Academy Award-winning filmmakers Damon Russell and Andrew Napier, also serves as a living diary of this unprecedented time. Do you have a story to share or know someone you think we should interview? Contact us →
