Hi, Listeners. We’re all going through a crisis and this pandemic has been on all our minds. Initially, we wanted to talk about Lauren Yee’s play “Ching Chong Chinaman” but instead, we decided to talk about plagues, pandemics, and outbreaks that exist in plays and popular culture. We hope everyone is hanging in there. We are all thinking about you, listeners. Please take care of yourselves and each other.
