For the first time in a long time, it feels like all people on Earth have something in common. An exploration of what unites us in a time of social distancing, we visit and re-visit people in Hongkong and India, Greece and Gaza, among other places.


episode 17: United States: Voting during the Pandemic [transcript]

Moving to a new state, participating in her first election, and managing new internships is challenging enough for most 18-year-olds to manage, but McKenzie is navigating through these rites of passage in the COVID-19 pandemic.

In this episode, McKenzie will talk about her experience living and working in the American South, what it was like to work with - a national non-partisan organization that helps to register and inform eligible voters across the country - during one of the most heated elections in the country's recent history, and what it’s like to grow up in a time of political division in the United States.

This interview was recorded on November 24, 2020.
