Description

We’re in a moment that feels scary, uncertain and unsettling, and may feel this way for a while. While we’ll continue to cover the coronavirus pandemic until it’s over, we realize that this time requires more than news and information. We also need release — and relief. And we’ll do our best to provide that in the coming weeks. To start, we asked a few of our colleagues at The Times to share what’s bringing them comfort right now. For more information on today’s episode, visit nytimes.com/thedaily.

Guests:

  • Taffy Brodesser-Akner reads from “Love in the Time of Cholera” by Gabriel García Márquez.
  • Wesley Morris reads from “In Pursuit of Flavor” by Edna Lewis.
  • Dean Baquet reads from “On Living in an Atomic Age” by C.S. Lewis.
