May 6, Part 2: Why there might be more to your pandemic boredom; Biking boom in Canada; Healing power of music; The shadow of COVID-19 on Ramadan
25 days ago
How are you feeling as the lockdown drags on? A little bored? A lot bored? Very bored?! We talk to neuroscientist James Danckert about why we’re feeling this way, while clinical psychologist Dr. John Eastwood says it might even serve an important purpose.
Then, with quieter roads and fewer cars, there’s a biking boom happening across Canada. We look at whether it will last, and what could be done to make it safer on our streets.
Plus, when Montreal-based artist Maryze wrote a song for her hospitalized grandmother, she never expected the chaplain to play it for the entire facility. They join us to discuss the healing power of music.
And we hear about the shadow the pandemic has cast on Ramadan, and how Muslims are coping in unusual times.
