Seeking Wellness I: Mental Health

As the global health pandemic rages, wellness - in the physical sense - has been top of mind. We’ve been urged to practice social distancing, to wear masks, to get sunshine for Vitamin D and Vitamin C from fresh fruits and vegetables to protect us from COVID-19. Business, restaurants, gyms, theatres and sports arenas have all closed to enhance our chances for health. Yet oft times - these very measures can have an unintended negative impact on our mental health. Disconnection from others and from our normal routines, sudden unemployment, the loss of loved ones - and even being under the same roof with partners 24/7 can pile on stressors in an already stressed-out world: calls to one mental health hotline jumped 891% since the lockdown began.

Lost and Found, Part I

These pandemic times have brought out great winners and great losers: We’re reminded that Shakespeare wrote King Lear during a plague, and Newton discovered gravity, as he sheltered in his family’s estate outside Cambridge. Yet these discoveries and breakthroughs don’t come easy, as schedules and routines are broken; relationships distanced and our sense of “normal” is shaken. This topic turned out to be especially emotional to our participants, so this will be a special two part podcast.
We hope you will be touched and will resonate with their experiences, as we work together to find our way through these pandemic times.

Taxonomy and the Crisis Cake

What is the crisis cake, and what does it mean for you? What are the changes afoot in the Great Reset, as we watch many of our longstanding social and business assumptions being reshaped or discarded altogether? Who and what are some of the likely winners and losers in this time of great disruption and change? Join us as our guest Jeremiah Owyang helps to define a cartography of Covid, as we discover ways to find our way through. In this episode, Jeremiah opens a thousand doors, providing many insights, while showing leaders ways to support their employees during these challenging times. 
We hope you’ll enjoy the conversation.

Lost and Found, Part II

We conclude Part II of the Great Reset Podcast: Lost and Found, speaking with a young woman living at the epicenter of the pandemic in the U.S., New York City. She talks about the experience of “saudade” -- a Portugese word denoting a vague and constant desire for something that does not and probably cannot exist, for something other than the present, a turning towards the past or towards the future; not an active discontent or poignant sadness but an indolent dreaming wistfulness. Oscillating between a state of saudade and existential rage, she grieves the loss of her great city, and the life, hopes, and dreams she thought she was living in it. Join us for the emotional conclusion of Lost and Found, as we see the impact of the multiple traumatic events, from the social unrest to the pandemic, and more importantly, the loss of certainty in one woman’s life.

Dispersion

For many years, the trend in migration globally has been toward urbanization, as people - and particularly young people - move to cities to enjoy the cultural and other amenities possible in dense urban environs. Yet Covid has shown us that density is not your friend in a pandemic; and that - coupled with the fact that many amenities like live music, restaurants, bars, museums, spectator sports and other live events are impossible at this time, many seem to be concluding that the risk sans amenities may no longer be worth the premium urban price tag. 
We look forward to presenting a great discussion this week.

Privacy, Surveillance and Health Tracking

This week on the Great Reset Salon Podcast, we meet software engineer Francesco Carrucci to discuss the challenges of notifying people who have been in close contact with people who may have been infected with COVID-19 but not presenting symptoms. Francesco shares his thoughts on how this process works today without surrendering personally identifiable information to the government or to marketers, and whether the idea of "concept tracing" should instead be "infection notification".
