I can’t go in. Nobody is wearing a mask.
Look, pandemic polarization was a real thing. We all saw it: school board blow ups, fist fights on air planes, anti-vax protests at state capitols. But for most of us, the fallout was more personal, closer to home. We felt conflicted over whether to attend a friend’s wedding. Our parents cancelled Christmas — or didn’t. An aunt is no longer on speaking terms with a cousin over vaccine differences.
But do you ever worry … maybe all those judgment calls you had to make made you judgmental?
Katelyn and Roxy are back for season three and they are joined by the fabulous podcasting duo Sarah Stewart Holland and Beth Silvers from Pantsuit Politics to discuss, well, the politics of the pandemic. But, more really, whether there’s a path forward together. Can we heal the deep divides between us? And what will that take from me?
