Welcome to the new normal. For so many of us around the globe, our lives have been forever changed by the coronavirus. And we will never be the same. And yet, locked away in social isolation in our homes, away from our normal routine, we are searching for ways to connect with one another, ways to stay sane during this insane time. On Mondays, Wednesday, and Fridays for the foreseeable future, host Jonathan Hirsch will bring you stories of people who are far away...up close. Stories of how each of us are learning to live through this pandemic.
