If you were forced to quarantine as a result of COVID-19 and could only hang out with members of one other household, who would you choose? On the latest episode of Far From Home, writer and filmmaker Mike Hickey tells me how a government experiment that limited the number of people he and his fellow residents of Newfoundland, Canada could interact with forced many people to make difficult and stressful choices. I also play some excerpts from Mike’s Double Your Bubble podcast, where he speaks to his friends about how they made their decisions.
