Disaster Zone Podcast: 'The Social Impacts of the Pandemic'

Physical and mental isolation are only two of the impacts most people have felt.

The coronavirus pandemic has had multiple impacts on our society, ranging from medical, economic, education — you name it, nothing has remained the same. All this physical change has impacted how people interact with and relate to one another.

The social impacts to people have been huge. Besides the coronavirus itself, there have been political and racial tensions in the United States. Tim Bayer, a Lutheran pastor, discusses those impacts and how best we can muddle through these events, not knowing how things will be different when we come out on the other side, in this Disaster Zone podcast: "The Social Impacts of the Pandemic."
