While COVID-19 continues to dominate the news cycle, we thought our listeners would enjoy a break from coronavirus headlines.

Here’s the weekly roundup of some of our favorite segments that have nothing to do with the pandemic. As always, tell us what you think, and be sure to share your favorites! You can tag us on Twitter at @OSTTalk and join and comment in our Facebook group: “GPB Radio’s On Second Thought.”

Last week, the On Second Thought team pulled together a list of some of our favorite interviews from our archives.

And as COVID-19 headlines continue to top the news, we wanted to share another list of thoughtful, non-coronavirus conversations to take your mind off any fears and anxieties regarding the pandemic. Until the virus’ spread slows down, we’ll be dropping a list like this one at the start of every week.

COVID-19 headlines have dominated the news nationally, on GPB and conversations within On Second Thought. But, there’s a lot more that our show has to offer within its archives that may provide a break from the coronavirus outbreak.
