A three-part series from This American Life producer Nancy Updike. When Rachel McKibbens’s father and brother died suddenly last fall, two weeks apart, from Covid, she’d had no idea her father was sick, and no idea her brother was dying. They were unvaccinated, but the story of what happened started long before that. All three episodes of "We Were Three," a new show from Serial Productions and The New York Times, are available wherever you get your podcasts on Thursday, October 13th, 2022.

Wow! Incredibly sad. Who could have imagined two people dying of COVID-19 wasn't the saddest part of this podcast? COVID-19 took the father and son's body, but the dad beat down his son's spirit and muddled his daughter's view of herself long long before COVID-19 entered their lives. Frankly, Rachel could use therapy for the past and present. And yet she has found an area within herself where she is at peace and thrives. Excellent excellent journalism by Ms. Updike. I'm sure she has hours of additional interviews, which could have extended this revelation of misery and sadness. Here's to Rachels' (Ms. McKibbens') journey towards reconciliation with her past and a brighter future filled with peace and purpose
Karma karma karma is right. But not for Rachel. Serves him right.
Yes, listen to some idiot without a medical degree. I can understand being hesitant about the vaccine but treatment ? What
