Dave asked listeners what they’re doing to help out in the time of COVID-19 and got some responses back to talk about. These things, whether big or small, directly related or tangential to this public health crisis–even if it means staying at home–are all part of an unusual effort among the people of the world to contribute to a greater purpose. Whether it’s making PPE, making explainer videos, picking up garbage outside, or staying home, it’s all important.

And we talk about the things that still are able to bring us joy even when we can’t venture out of the house.
