The Check-In

Kristofor Husted / KBIA

In today's episode, we look to the weekend and consider whether some of our favorite extra-curricular pursuits can help us through this coronavirus crisis.

 

We ask our audience what they’re reading, listening to and watching that is getting them through this crisis. Maybe there’s even something that’s more than just an escape - that’s actually helped provide meaning and solace during difficult times.

 

And how are musicians and artists faring during a time when galleries are closed and concerts are cancelled?

In this episode, we talk about community efforts to bring resources to those who need it most right now in the midst of the coronvirus pandemic. In particular we look at nonprofits, faith groups and community efforts that are helping out during this crisis.

The coronavirus crisis has sparked tremendous changes in the lives of people all over the world, and in the last couple of weeks the crisis has arrived full-on for us Missourians.

 

In the recent weeks, MU moved its classes online, then closed its dorms and sent its students home. Gov. Parson declared a state of emergency. Libraries, restaurants, offices, theaters and more have closed their doors. Elections have been postponed. Many of us are working from home, isolating with their families, or alone, and practicing social distancing.

 

It’s human nature to want to lean on our communities and hold our loved ones close. But in times like this, that could mean putting those loved ones at risk.
