1 min read

A global panic set in when Covid-19 spread across the world. Then the killing of George Floyd activated hundreds of protests that ended up happening throughout the globe. We all changed in some way. We explore those transformations in this discussion of the Weekly Check In.

Dame Crawford and Mikhail Furnace talk about how the pandemic and protests forced institutions and even themselves to re-assess and reconstruct. In this discussion, we talk about what that looks like largely through the lens of two men.
