While we are all living through a global pandemic, the experience looks different from country to country. I decided to speak to some of my family members — my Aunt Amanda in Australia, my Aunt Sharon in the U.K. and my grandmother, Dawn Veiner, in South Africa — to learn what life in COVID times has been like for them. This three-part podcast explores the stories of pandemic life around the globe.
