Lasting Impacts of the Pandemic: Looking Back at the Covid Crisis & How It Will Affect Society
One year into the pandemic, we take stock of the effects this global crisis has had on individuals and society. We talk with an anthropologist and a sociologist about the changes that may alter the way we live in the future. And we ask listeners to offer their input and anecdotes about what they will remember most — and what they have learned during these unforgettable times.
This show is part of Maine Public’s special Deep Dive Coronavirus reporting series.
