Portraits of a New Normal: Episode 1

From singing operas via Zoom to retailer workers facing daily peril, our first episode explores how the world adapted to (or ignored) its new reality in the second year of COVID-19.

This is Portraits of a New Normal, a series of podcasts from Annenberg Radio News about how we’re coping with our new realities during the pandemic. On this show, we’ll be hearing from community vaccination sites, Asian-American students, and opera majors about their takes on this Covid-19 year two.
