Across the U.S., at least 316 million people are practicing social distancing measures to halt the spread of COVID-19. Many people are finding so-called "quarantine buddies," groups of people agreeing to limit contact with anyone but each other and in effect, creating "alternative families." Also, journalist David Carr was a master of his craft. A new book includes more than 50 of his stories. We talk to Jill Rooney Carr, David Carr's widow, who edited the book. That and more, in hour one of Here & Now's April 10, 2020, full broadcast.
