The Nocturnists

We are The Nocturnists, a San Francisco-based independent medical storytelling community. Since 2016, we’ve produced over a dozen live storytelling shows in the Bay Area and New York City, three seasons of our podcast, and two special audio diary series: "Stories from a Pandemic" and "Black Voices in Healthcare."

Welcome to our community.

What is shame? And how does it manifest in medical culture? In this episode, The Nocturnists teams up with two shame experts to investigate these questions. From a pool of over 200 stories submitted to The Nocturnists from healthcare workers across the US, the UK, and beyond, we’ll explore the tension between who we are, and what the culture expects of us.
