The Lonely Hour is a podcast about loneliness – but it’s not a bummer. Julia Bainbridge has created a space to talk openly in hopes of both de-stigmatizing loneliness and underscoring the joys of solitude.
In this episode, the Walking Dead actress Pollyanna McIntosh talks about choosing joy over stress, while sheltering in place in Los Angeles. “When I do feel overwhelmed by the enormitude of the pain and suffering that’s going on out there from this thing, along with everything else, it can feel quite overwhelming in the chest,” she says. “And I think where my mind always goes is, ‘Well, do you want to add to that mass stress or do you want to put out some good vibes?’ And good vibes, thank you, is the bloody answer.”
