Coming Of Age In The Current Moment: High Schoolers Reflect On The Past Year, And The Future

What's it like to come of age during a time of extreme political division and a global pandemic? We talk with young Granite Staters about how the past year has shaped and impacted them, and what they're thinking about the future.

Air date: Tuesday, January 26, 2021.
