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 the midst of the global pandemic of Covid 19, we here at Comfort Measures thought we should try in some small way to help address the crisis and since we're not medical professionals, or essential workers or ventilator manufacturers, we're doing it the only way we know how by discussing a comfort movie and eating some comfort food. As you'll hear, these Corona Comfort episodes will be a little more freeform than our normal eps but will hopefully provide some comfort all the same. In today's episode, Jessica chats about the 1995 Dustin Hoffman gem, OUTBREAK, and addresses the reasons (in these difficult times) it can actually be considered a comfort.

The Comfort Food is Oatmeal Rasin cookes and the link to the recipe is below. No Community Comfort this episode but there are some comfort action suggestions in the podcast. The Virtual Tour of the Musee D'Orsay (mentioned in the ep) is linked below. So grab some oatmeal raisn cookies, cue up OUTBREAK on Netflix and join Jess for a discussion of comfort in the age of Coronavorus.
