Free-to-view “Oprah Talks COVID-19” interview series launches on Apple TV+

Oprah Winfrey has teamed up with Apple on a new free-to-view series in which the popular talk show host and producer holds remote interviews with people personally affected by COVID-19.

She announced yesterday on Twitter:

Like millions of people all over the world, I’ve been staying safer at home for over a week now. I know a lot of people are feeling stressed, overwhelmed and uncertain. Because of that, I want to offer some hope and gather thought leaders and people going through it to add some perspective.

The new series is now streaming on Apple TV, no subscription required.

From the official blurb for “Oprah Talks COVID-19”:

How can we mindfully move through a crisis while holding on to ourselves and our humanity? In this series, Oprah has remote conversations with experts and everyday people to provide insight, meaning and tangible advice for the human spirit.

Episode 1 of the show has Oprah speaking with Idris Elba and his wife Sabrian Dhowre about living with COVID-19. Episode 2 explores the “spiritual meaning of this moment” with Oprah’s longtime friend who “offers words of wisdom, peace and strength.”

Do you plan on watching this new interview series from Oprah in this situation?

Oprah is a popular television personality who’s been a source of inspiration to many, I think this new show could be very helpful to folks who are feeling anxiety in these times of uncertainty.
