Podcasting the Pandemic
Professor Terry Shoemaker has developed Podcast for the Plague Year, a deeper dive into contributions made to the Journal of the Plague Year. Available online, the archive allows anyone to submit artifacts regarding life during the COVID-19 pandemic. Mining the many photos, videos, reflections, and other submissions to the archive, Podcast of the Plague Year selects some interesting topics and explores the world of the pandemic.
Join Terry as we journey across the world to see how the pandemic has influenced the daily lives of people everywhere; we'll also use this space to share some of our favorite podcasts from the curatorial consortium as well.
