In psychologist Adam Grant's latest op-ed for The New York Times, Grant puts a name to that feeling borne out of the pandemic — showing up for life, but living without purpose and aim. Sociologist Corey Keyes first coined that feeling as "languishing." Keyes joins us. And, a water crisis in Jackson, Mississippi, came to head this winter when freezing storms left residents without running water for an entire month. We speak with two activists there. That and more, in hour one of Here & Now's May 4, 2021, full broadcast.
