Comfort Measures

Comfort Measures is a podcast that takes a closer look at the media we consume and the food we eat when we are seeking comfort. Why do we take comfort in action movies or suspenseful books or scary television shows? What media connects us? How does food contribute to our comfort? So, get comfy and join Jessica Ammirati from Going to Tahiti Productions, as she delves into the sources of our comfort. Lord knows we all could use a little comfort right about now...

In today's episode, Jessica does things a little differently - not one book or movie or comfort show but three comfort shows, and not just three comfort shows but three comfort shows and their companion podcasts. So, join Jess as she discusses THE WEST WING and the podcast THE WEST WING WEEKLY; THE GOOD PLACE and the podcast THE GOOD PLACE THE PODCAST; and SCRUBS and the podcast FAKE DOCTORS REAL FRIENDS WITH ZACH AND DONALD. The Comfort Food is Blueberry Pancakes (with a side of crispy bacon). For the Community Comfort, Jess gets all Peace, Love, and Hippie on y'all suggesting some tree hugging; and, as with the last Corona Comfort she has some more comfort action suggestions, this time involving Frank Lloyd Wright. So, whip up some flapjacks and join Jess for a discussion of high quality hugs, connection despite Corona, and the importance of a solid "no ash-hole" workplace policy.
