Brilliant and very moving. I hope many people hear this episode in particular. It's the sound of people becoming united amidst a horrible worldwide crisis, in an interesting and unexpected way- through digital communication and social media, which seems like is a part of our society that has snowballed into many negative implications of its power, like isolation, misunderstanding, and inauthenticity. It's a silver-lining that I hope grows brighter through all this.
