Bonus | The Essentials: Inside the Curve - The Nurse
00:17:40
This is the second part of a special series, "The Essentials: Inside the Curve," first-person diaries from the people on the front lines of the COVID-19 pandemic -- the essential workers risking their own health and safety to ensure others are taken care of. From doctors, nurses and paramedics to police officers, transportation and sanitation workers, you'll hear directly from those keeping the world moving while so many are quarantining at home and working to flatten the curve. Today, this 38-year-old intensive care nurse in Torrance, California says she's used to working long, hectic shifts in the ICU at Providence Little Company of Mary Medical Center.  But seeing her patients die alone due to COVID-19, with no family around, has taken a mental toll on nurse Lindsey Burrell. That's when the mother of two decided to reach out to a psychiatrist for help. It's also taken a physical toll.  Generally heathy and active, Burrell says in the past 30 days she's been sick more than she's been well, getting to a point where she was tested twice for COVID-19. Through audio journals provided to ABC News, Burrell gives a candid glimpse of her life juggling a loving family with whom she can sometimes have no physical contact and her job trying to save lives, at times both heartbreaking and inspiring. "The Essentials: Inside the Curve" is a special series from ABC Audio. Listen for free on Apple Podcasts (https://apple.co/2ROvcnw), Spotify (https://bit.ly/3ct575v), or your favorite podcast app.

Bonus | The Essentials: Inside the Curve - The Doctor
00:12:04
This is the first part of a special series, "The Essentials: Inside the Curve," first-person diaries from the people on the front lines of the COVID-19 pandemic -- the essential workers risking their own health and safety to ensure others are taken care of. From doctors, nurses and paramedics to police officers, transportation and sanitation workers, you'll hear directly from those keeping the world moving while so many are quarantining at home and working to flatten the curve. Today, a 39-year-old cardiologist grabs 15 minutes of sleep whenever he can grab it. He's separated from his family, including his six-month old son, only able to connect via FaceTime calls between shifts at his New York City hospital. He's not willing to put his loved ones at risk from the exposure he faces every day as he treats COVID-19 patients. But Dr. Hadi Halazun returns to the frontlines nearly every day, determined to see the crisis through. Through audio journals provided to ABC News, Dr. Halazun movingly remembers his first patient who died from coronavirus, expresses concern for his colleagues and talks about the toll of not seeing his family. Hear in his own words how he also finds inspiration and hope pouring from a community that supports the essential workers.

Introducing 'Truth and Lies: Jeffrey Epstein'
00:03:13
Listen to 'Truth and Lies: Jeffrey Epstein' on Apple Podcasts (https://apple.co/2QLK5ph), Spotify (https://spoti.fi/2MUjtS9) or your preferred podcast app. More than a decade ago, mysterious financier Jeffrey Epstein was investigated by local and federal authorities in Florida for allegedly sexually abusing dozens of teenage girls. But despite what appeared to be overwhelming evidence of a horrifying pattern of abuse, Epstein managed to escape all but minor charges, striking a sweetheart deal with the government that required him to spend just 13 months in jail while granting him and his alleged co-conspirators immunity from federal prosecution. Years later, in the wake of Epstein's sudden arrest and shocking demise, those teenage girls - now women - are still seeking answers to their fundamental questions about their abuser and his allies. In dozens of interviews, ABC News' Mark Remillard, reporting with the ABC News Investigative Unit, shares the stories of those women, who have fought to have their voices heard, as well as the lawyers and investigators who tried to bring Epstein to justice. And we retrace Epstein's rise from modest roots to the very intersection of wealth and power, seeking to uncover the forces that shielded Epstein from justice.
