In this episode, Carmen chats with Dr. Melissa Macaraeg about her experience fighting COVID-19 in New York during its peak. Public figures and the media have spread many contradictory messages about the virus, but one thing is still certain: there will be serious repercussions in the form of emotional and economic devastation for months and years to come. Melissa offers insights into how Christians can serve in the midst of so much suffering.

Note: The following questions were submitted by listeners that we didn't have time to discuss on the podcast, but Matt kindly answered them via email:
1. Are you seeing a difference in severity of COVID-19 between those immunized with the flu vaccine and those that didn't receive the vaccine?
Not personally, no. I would not expect there to be any significant difference, since the flu vaccine is pathogen-specific. That being said it's still a good idea to get the flu vaccine every year. It can prevent you from getting the flu, and even if you do still get the flu your symptoms are likely to be milder than they otherwise would have. It's also possible to contract both COVID-19 and influenza simultaneously. 2. There's a lot of speculation that the accurate number of COVID deaths is being skewed by faulty classifications. Any insights on this?
I'm not personally involved in that process, so I can't speak to it directly. I'm doubtful, though, that the fatality numbers are being meaningfully skewed. At least as of now, we're not going around testing large numbers of asymptomatic people.
There may be some people who die while infected with COVID-19 (but not necessarily BECAUSE of COVID-19). But there are also going to be people who die from COVID-19 and never get tested for COVID-19. There are reports from Italy, for example, of significant percentages of patients dying in nursing homes who were never tested for COVID-19 or added to the tally.
In this week's episode, Carmen chats with Dr. Liz Jackson about her contribution to an exciting new book titled A New Theist Response to the New Atheists. They discuss why conversations surrounding philosophy and religion are often so polarizing, the most compelling arguments on both sides, and a handy academic life hack.

In today’s episode of No Apologies, Carmen and Ian discuss why the editors at Christianity Today are wrong about impeaching Donald Trump. We also discuss the Democratic agenda, pelagianism, Trump’s "faith,” and why Christians should still vote for him in 2020.
