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.

Just Five Minutes tells the story of pediatric critical care physician Cathy Humikowsky’s own cardiac arrest which happened on the same day she gave birth to her daughter. This story was originally told live at The Nocturnists event on the theme of Transitions which took place at the Blue Shield of California Theater at YBCA on January 16, 2020.
