I’ve Just Left the ER, and I Need to Talk
In Episode 1 of Doctor’s Log, Esther Choo—a Portland, Oregon, emergency-room physician—takes us inside her daily life on the frontlines of the COVID-19 pandemic. This is a new world: where she contends with dangerous equipment shortages; where she watches colleagues fall sick and wonders who’s next; and where she comes out of the ER each night wanting to talk. That’s where these recorded diaries, named for Captain Kirk’s Captain’s Log on Star Trek, come in.
