This is a tough episode, friends. Kathleen says goodbye to a family member suffering from COVID-19, and the women talk about how this virus is affecting families.

Bethany brings you some theories. And a TasteBud is still dating during social distancing, and is loving it!  --------- Check out our merch! —> https://store.dftba.com/collections/an-acquired-taste-podcast  --------- Please support the companies that support us!  Hydrant - Hydrant creates flavored electrolyte packets you mix directly into your water to make hydrating your body easy and delicious!  For 25% off your first order, go to DrinkHydrant.com (http://drinkhydrant.com/) and enter promo code taste at checkout.
