Covering Coronavirus: Connection in the time of pandemic

In this episode, we examine two connections shown in dramatic ways during the COVID-19 pandemic. First, the connection between humankind and the planet: We speak with a climate scientist on how the economic shut down is impacting the planet, and how coronavirus could be a template for the fight against climate change.

Then, we explore the connection between doctor and patient, and how the science of compassion is on full display.
