Joy in the time of the coronavirus

Download Audio

We end our hour observing the two-year anniversary of when the pandemic came to Greater Boston with a conversation about joy.

Two years of COVID have brought a lifetime's share of loss, grief and loneliness. But there has to be a way to acknowledge the births, marriages, graduations, new friendships, and personal accomplishments of the last two years without dishonoring everything that's been lost.

We do just that with two Boston journalists, Kara Baskin, a correspondent for The Boston Globe, and Meghan Kelly, multi-platform editor for WBUR, as well as hear from listener callers about their own moments of joy and pride over the course of the pandemic.

This segment aired on March 10, 2022.
