Episode 2: A Whole New World
What is really going on around the world with COVID-19? I watch the news and see the images, but I never get to hear the perspective of everyday people like me.

Episode 7: Will the tears ever stop?
I remember talking to a man who recently lost a loved one and he asked, “Will the tears ever stop?” Those words stuck with me. With COVID-19, how much harder is grief? Watching loved ones pass away on a cell phone while holding a nurse’s hand. Attending a funeral with few attendees who are spaced […]
Episode 8: Vote
I know we hear the same rhetoric every election cycle, but this time feels different.
