The Modernist Society - Coronavirus Potluck
This is fine.

It’s an all-star cast in this special episode in which we ring up past Modernist Society guests and other folks around the world to talk about how the coronavirus pandemic is shaking out where they live and what lies ahead. Also… they help us pick songs for a COVID-19 playlist. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll kiss five bucks goodbye.
