are you looking for clear, factual, no b.s. answers on covid? disinformation about covid-19 can spread just as rapidly as the virus itself. as tom begins a trip down the mississippi river for the “american neighbor” documentary by the nantucket project, he and rp discuss the different attitudes about the pandemic across the nation, from mask wearing to conspiracy theories and how disinformation can counter productive disease control. meanwhile, as vaccines are rushed to be created, nationalism comes into play: how could the united states have been more globally minded, and thus helped combat covid-19 at home and abroad?

never ending covid. the nation is in a resurgence of covid-19 cases. the virus is being passed in bars, through shopping, parties, and an infinite list of places and events where people are doing the simple action of coming together. there’s a toll we pay for not doing this, but as rp eddy explains in today’s episode, the pandemic will continue to drag on if we don’t enact vigilant measures of social distancing, mask wearing, and cleaning. how will schools—vital to the education, nutrition, and job market of the nation—open? will this summer become safer or more dangerous for infections?
