The New Normal, and Life After the Pandemic
In the final episode of The Grindstone's COVID-19 series, our guests share their thoughts on how this pandemic is changing, will change, and could change the world...for better and for worse. Topics of discussion include technology’s role in our experience of this pandemic, what the economic crisis might mean for the future, what we can expect as we return to school, when we can expect things to return to normal - whether or not such a thing is possible - and what positive societal growth may come out of these challenges.
Today's guests are: Dr. Audrey Ruple, Assistant Professor of One Health Epidemiology at Purdue; Dr. Kevin Harrelson, Associate Professor of Philosophy at Ball State University; Dr. Jillian Carr, Assistant Professor of Economics at Purdue; PhD candidate in the Department of History at Purdue, Caitlin Fendley; Dr. Dan Kelly, Professor of Philosophy at Purdue; Dr. Nilupa Gunaratna, Assistant Professor of Public Health at Purdue; and Dr. David Bernard, an emergency pediatrics physician in Birmingham, AL.
Special thanks to Al Terity for all the new sounds.
