COVID Stories Part 3

21 minutes

On this episode of Far From Home, I continue my series where I’m checking in with friends and colleagues around the world to get a sense of the many ways COVID-19 is affecting people and how their governments are handling the pandemic. This time we hear voices from Tunisia, Switzerland, Cameroon, Antigua and Barbuda, Mexico, and the Czech Republic. If you’ve missed the previous two installments of my COVID Stories series, you can check them out in my season 3 archive.

As mentioned in this episode, if you’re a Swiss German speaker and want to listen to This Wachter’s botany podcast, you can find it here. Morgan Childs recently produced Foreign Insiders, a 10-part series about foreigners and other outsiders in the Czech Republic. And you can follow Sam Kimball (who gave us the update from Tunisia) on Twitter.


On Far From Home, award-winning public radio journalist Scott Gurian documents fascinating stories from far-flung places like Iran, Chernobyl, and Mongolia. For more info, visit
