Description

Patrick Kroupa and I share an off-the-cuff conversation about COVID-19. We talk about how it is impacting each of our lives, our thoughts on the socio-political responses to the pandemic, and what Patrick's experiences of watching friends and family die offers us insofar as how to show up to the upcoming mass fatalities due to the virus.
