A technical note
When we first had the idea for COVID Stories, we thought we'd record ten or fifteen minutes and then edit that down to a three to five minute segment. But then the interviews began and it was almost cathartic. Everyone had more to say than could be fit into ten or fifteen minutes. When we heard the awesome insights that were being shared, we realized there was no way to cut anything. So, it's all here.
Also, the COVID Stories interviews were conducted during the shelter-in-place lockdown using Microsoft Teams. What you’re hearing is unedited, unfiltered, and with any call quality issues and technical glitches left in. We’ve all had our share of online meetings during lockdown, so you can probably relate to these glitches that can pop up when you least expect it.
