#52 I Thought Herman Cain Season Was Over (Bonus #8)
Sinclairity: A Dinosaurs Tale
Welcome back to Sinclairity A Dinosaurs Tale: the only podcast whose taller host stole a cursed amulet from the depths of the Marianas Trench, leading to an increase in water-based natural disasters over the past couple of years. We recorded an episode last year while host Ben Handupme was podcasting by candlelight in the middle of Hurricane Zeta. And this year, we recorded an episode while Ben Handupme prepared their apartment and pets to withstand Hurricane Ida. Our other host We’re Gonna Need Another Timmy was there for emotional support, and our producer Zach George was there to tell Ben to leave New Orleans and move back to Ohio. On this bonus episode, our hosts spend their time discussing hurricanes they’ve been in or have evacuated town for and several less important things. This episode, and every other episode, is dedicated to the memory of the best person Ben Handupme has ever met: Ben Kovarsky. RIP in peace.https://blacklivesmatters.carrd.co/ https://anti-asianviolenceresources.carrd.co/ https://southernsolidarity.org/

John Lewis, Herman Cain, COVID-19, and men’s health: Processing the complexity of this moment with Dr. Derek Griffith
Derek M. Griffith, PhD, joints host Lorenzo Norris, MD, to discuss different ways to look at men’s health within the context of COVID-19. Dr. Griffith is founder and director of the Center for Research on Men’s Health at Vanderbilt University, Nashville, Tenn. He also serves as professor of medicine, health, and society at the university. Neither Dr. Griffith nor Dr. Norris have disclosures. And do not miss Renee Kohanski, MD, who offers a message of hope in the “Dr. RK” segment. Take-home points The confluence of the COVID-19 pandemic, the death of civil rights leader Rep. John Lewis, and the death of Herman Cain from COVID-19 requires us to reflect on race, gender, personal identity, and our own vulnerability. Sometimes denial in the form of thinking “that won’t happen to me” is a trope within masculinity, especially black masculinity, and can lead to men delaying preventive treatments and interventions, which makes them more vulnerable to excess morbidity and mortality from preventable diseases. Some research suggests that men are more likely to suffer severe effects of COVID-19 than women. Personal preference and agency are hallmarks of the American ethos, and those attitudes made it difficult to accept new and challenging information during the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic. Ironically, this fierce autonomy is celebrated and demonized in the male identity and will have an effect on their behavior in the environment. In terms of mental health, we must consider how schemas influence behavior, and one’s ability to take in and act on relevant information. Any singular lens is limited when discussing an issue as complex as the current pandemic. Many perspectives must be examined if we are to work toward an effective solution. While society is examining COVID-19 morbidity and mortality through the lens of race, we may miss other essential perspectives, such as place, gender, age, etc. In a situation such as the COVID-19 pandemic, we must manage complexity by asking the hard questions. Dr. Norris asked Dr. Griffith to identify what factor in the pandemic we are missing from our current perspectives. Dr. Griffith suggested that our society continues to assume that we know more about COVID-19 than we actually know. Several times throughout the pandemic, we have assumed that we have it “figured out,” only to be shown that the SARS-CoV-2 virus is more unpredictable than we realize. Race, gender, age, and health disparities also will be at play when it comes time to test and administer a COVID-19 vaccine. References Griffith DM et al. Prev Chronic Dis. 2020;17:E63.
