From the Frontlines

Amanda Paul is a nurse at St. Luke’s Hospital in New Bedford, Massachusetts. A nurse for 11 years, she works at the hospital as a bedside nurse on a medical surgical floor caring for respiratory patients. Amanda describes what a typical day in her job looks like, a fast-paced environment working closely with her patients along with a supportive team of other healthcare professionals. She shares how this has been upended since the start of the pandemic, the fear she faced going to work everyday, and paints a picture of what it looks like to be at the front of the frontlines fighting this virus.

Speaking of Dignity is a podcast dedicated to listening to the voices of those workers whose labor we recognize as essential but who rarely get an opportunity to share their experiences, expertise, and insights. Our aim is to move toward recognition of the most vulnerable in the working world and expand our imagination of the common good.
