For the Love of the Nose

From Kayte Young | 09:55

You never know what you've got until it's gone.


“It had not occurred to me before I lost it, the primary role that my sense of smell plays in my everyday life, and the pleasure I experience in some of my favorite pastimes--growing food and cooking food. Sure, I could still do those things but it felt like the volume was turned down.”

This is a sound-rich audio essay from Earth Eats producer Kayte Young, reflecting on the experience of losing her sense of smell after contracting COVID-19.
