#38 - Take Monkeypox Seriously + Free Brittney Griner

Beau my God

06-08-2022 • 24 mins

Check in on Beau My God this week to hear discussion from host Beau Bradley (he/they) on some pretty serious current events, including the latest on the imprisonment and efforts to secure the release of two-time Olympic gold medalist and WNBA allstar #BrittneyGriner; and then monkey pox, covering knowledge about how it spreads, who is at risk and what you can do to minimize your risk to the (lack of) government response, eerily reminiscent of their response to the AIDS pandemic. Beau wraps things up by offering a reminder to practice and maintain coping skills, especially for during times of intense stress or anxiety. However big or small, utilizing coping skills during moments of stress will help both your mind and body to regulate.
