This is the ninth and final episode of US in the Time of Coronavirus.
We’ve surpassed 100,000 deaths in our country, and more than 3,826 deaths here in Connecticut as of Friday, May 20th. These numbers aren’t just numbers. They’re mothers, daughters, sisters, fathers, brothers and sons; Grandmas and grandpas, and best friends.
This hour, you’ll hear about what made them laugh, what gave them purpose, and what deep, long-lasting marks they left of the friends and family who remember them with me.
Stay tuned until the end of the show, and you'll hear about the new show that I'm hosting, starting next week.
