50. Soyela Shafer — Pandemic by Bicycle

Stories of COVID™

Soyela Shafer was in the midst of biking the remote Nullabor Plains in Australia when news of the global pandemic hit.  With towns shutting down and state borders closing, the fear of COVID-19 was running wild in the small communities she encountered, and a subsequent unwillingness to help an outsider. In this episode we hear how her travels interrupted her ability to get information, and the decision she was forced to make to shelter in place. Interviewed 16 May 2020.  Learn more about leaving a story for future generations at https://storiesofcovid.co--- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/stories-of-covid/support
