Shifting Household Dynamics In A Pandemic

Cori Princell; NHPR

The coronavirus pandemic has forced everyone indoors, where we're in much closer quarters with our families, spouses, and roommates. Without external escapes, daily annoyances can become exasperating and tensions can run high. We chat about how we can address the shifting dynamics in our households and better communicate with each other. For those that live alone, we discuss the ways that isolation can impact us and how to find community remotely. 

Air date: Thursday, July 30, 2020.
