Jonathan Rush, assistant conductor for the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, joins us to talk about what songs are on his summer playlist. And, COVID-19 long-haulers are people whose coronavirus symptoms linger, and even worsen, for months after they're cleared of infection. We speak with one husband whose 50-year-old wife died by suicide after enduring 13 months of debilitating post-virus symptoms. That and more, in hour two of Here & Now's June 28, 2021, full broadcast.
