93: Leah Goldrick on Overcoming Illness


We talk about the current pandemic, how Leah recovered from the disease, and how Stoicism was helpful in her recovery.

We recorded our conversation at the end of May during shelter in place in both New Jersey and Pennsylvania – two states we’re recording from. Please excuse the slight background noise on Leah’s end as I wasn’t able to edit all of it! I’m also avoiding the use of a certain virus starting with the letter c, at least in the episode description and title because YouTube is demonetizing content.

Find Leah’s work at commonsenseethics.com where you can read her blog posts, visit her YouTube channel, and find her on social media. Leah has also authored numerous pieces for modernstoicism.com dating back to 2016.
