Ep. 3 | The Pandemic Diaries with JinJin Xu

Divided Families Podcast

We hope everyone is doing well during these uncertain times with the COVID-19 outbreak. In this episode Eugene speaks with his friend JinJin, who tunes in from quarantine in Macau. JinJin is an MFA candidate at NYU who previously pursued a Thomas J. Watson Fellowship to speak with dislocated mothers in marginalized communities around the world. The two talk about JinJin's "Pandemic Diaries," which was inspired by the writer Fang Fang's "Wuhan Diary," and the importance of family during moments like this. You can read and subscribe to JinJin's newsletter here: https://tinyurl.com/t5p85mwWe are also starting a letter campaign, in which we encourage listeners to send five letters to their friends and family. The recipients should then write letters to five new people, like a chain letter. We hope this project will reaffirm our relationships during isolation, and also spread awareness about the different COVID-19 related funds people can contribute to. We are compiling a list of them here: https://tinyurl.com/sffwwjhFor updates, follow us on Instagram at @DividedFamiliesPodcast, and contact us at dividedfamiliespodcast@gmail.com
