(Joe Martino) If you’re feeling like it is becoming quite confusing to navigate information these days, you’re not alone. Who do you believe? Why is there such a divide?

(Lissa Rankin) As I’m trapped in my house because the air quality where I live in the Bay Area is incompatible with life, as I’m sheltered in place for six months and gave up all summer travel because I want to be a responsible community member and don’t want to hurt anyone who might be at risk of COVID, I am wrestling with how we live in a world where our president doesn’t believe in climate disasters and some doctors with public influence are denying the danger of COVID.
