Isolated Together

We’ll be looking at every conceivable angle related to the COVID-19 pandemic and its aftermath -- that includes the serious stuff, and the stuff we can laugh at. One day we might talk to health care workers and people who have recovered from the virus and their families, and look at the health care system and its struggles. The next day, we might dig up tips and tricks for being creative in a world without toilet paper, or mayonnaise.We’re gonna explore the problems with testing, and we’ll be interviewing epidemiologists, virologists, biostatisticians, public health experts, and regular folks like you and me. How do you keep your hands moisturized after washing them 30 times a day?We also want to take a critical look at media coverage of this pandemic, as well as the impact of social media misinformation and disinformation. Clear, accurate, and contextual information is more important now than ever before.Isolated Together is a production of the Quinnipiac University Podcast Studio, and is hosted by David DesRoches, director of community programming.
