Second season of Sentinel Health Lab's 'Invisible Illness' podcast out now

Keene Sentinel - 1/31/2024

Jan. 31—The Monadnock Region Health Reporting Lab launched the second season of its podcast today.

The series, Invisible Illness, is hosted by Sentinel Health Solutions Reporter Olivia Belanger, produced by Sentinel Digital Community Engagement Journalist James Rinker and edited by local editor Will Wrobel. Sentinel Visual Journalist Hannah Schroeder contributed photos and videos.

Each episode features a different local person with a mental or physical diagnosis that's not outwardly visible. The podcast aims to shed light on their daily experiences and debunk misconceptions about these illnesses.

In the new season, a Keene resident describes what it's like living with complex post-traumatic stress disorder, or C-PTSD, and a Swanzey resident talks about how her life has changed since being diagnosed with dysautonomia.

This season, which consists of two episodes, will also be available in a video format on The Sentinel's website and YouTube. Full transcriptions of both episodes will be included.

These additions were made possible with funding from the American Press Institute and editing support from Wrobel.

The first episode of season 2 is available now on Spotify, Apple Podcasts, Amazon Music and The second episode will be available on Wednesday, Feb. 7. You can listen to all of the first season now on the same platforms.

Funding for the Monadnock Region Health Reporting Lab comes from several sources, including The Sentinel and several local businesses and private donors. We continue to seek additional support. The newsroom maintains full editorial control over all content produced by the lab. Olivia Belanger can be reached at 352-1234, extension 1439, or Follow her on Twitter @OBelangerKS.
