38. COVID-19’s Exponential Growth with Amy Simpkins

38. COVID-19’s Exponential Growth with Amy Simpkins

In this bringing the podcast back episode, I interview self proclaimed data nerd Amy Simpkins about COVID-19’s exponential growth.

I’ve been personally off the grid due to the death of my father. He was one of my favorite people to walk the earth. A good egg. He went on hospice in December and then passed away in January. While we sat together each evening, with my mother too, we saw reports about a virus in Wuhan which eventually became a global pandemic.

Not quite sure what to do – who really knows right now? – I decided to create a series of resources Notable Women might need to get by right now, and they’re all housed in “The Social Distancing Summit.” You can find that in The Society of Notable Women right here. 

We’ve got experts on fear. anxiety, and stress; activities for tiny humans, and interviews like this one here with Amy Simpkins.

Amy is the CEO of muGrid Analytics, and she and her husband Travis created a data project looking at the exponential growth of COVID-19. You can find their work at humansvsvirus.com. The more we flatten the curve, the more likely we can beat the virus!! (I always see Bill Pullman’s speech in Independence Day in my head at this moment.)

One of the things I’ve noted as I talk to people about this virus is that don’t understand why people freak out when there’s 3, or 7, or even in the case of New York City, 300 cases in your community. Ah, my friend, that is what Amy is here to explain.

IN THIS EPISODE, I EXPLORE:
  • Why Amy’s the right person to talk to about this
  • Why Amy’s personally interested in the data around COVID-19
  • An explanation of some of the terms you’ve been hearing – R naught value and CFR
  • What COVID-19’s doubling time is
  • How we can #flattenthecurve

In this episode of The Notable Woman Podcast, I give you a taste of the Super U Summit with my talk: Disrupt Your Thoughts, Disrupt Your Life.

Super U Summit 4.0 begins on May 6th, but if you’ve never attended before, you might not be sure if it’s for you.

This talk is for anyone who has ever been stuck, and they’re not sure why.

IN THIS EPISODE, I EXPLORE:
  • What the Super U Summit is
  • What it means to disrupt our thoughts
  • How our thoughts determine our judgments determine our actions
