During this time of social isolation, you're not alone. WGBH is here to help you navigate this strange moment that we all find ourselves in. Host Arun Rath talks with experts, doctors, community leaders to provide the latest COVID-19 information on what's happening in Massachusetts. The Coronavirus might stop us from gathering in person, but it can’t stop us from connecting -- we're in it together.
In In It Together’s final episode before a summer break, Arun Rath checks back in with the family of Keith Jacobs, who died from COVID-19 last year, to discuss the massive toll this pandemic has taken. And Arun speaks with regular guest Dr. Nahid Bhadelia, now the founding director of Boston University’s new Center for Emerging Infectious Diseases Policy and Research.
A Trip to the Movies
After more than a year closed, the Brattle Theater is set to re-open its doors this July.
We’ll hear what we can expect about programming and the experience from Ivy Moylan, executive director and co-founder, and Ned Hinkle, creative director.
And yes, there will be a Jaws screening. Wouldn't be the Fourth of July without one.
We'll hear about the need for investment in local minority-owned businesses, especially as we emerge from the pandemic, when Arun Rath speaks with Kofi Callender of Roxbury-based start-up organization E for All and Widline Pyrame of Fusion Dolls.
The pandemic closed churches last year, preventing people from not only worshipping in person together, but grieving together. This is especially true for churches in communities of color. We'll hear more about this collective trauma from Reverend Emmett Price and Reverend Irene Monroe, both co-hosts of the GBH podcast, All Revv'd Up.
See It Live
Live local theater is getting back underway. The first performance in the Boston area will be at Arlington's Regent Theatre, where Michael Levin will perform his one-man show called "The Mom Show," about his mother's escape from Nazi Germany and how she made it to the U.S. Arun Rath speaks with Levin.
Most of the state's COVID-19 restrictions relax on Saturday, but according to a new survey, depression levels across the board remain high, even as the pandemic here in the United States improves.
Host Arun Rath speaks with Dr. Roy Perlis, the director for the Center for Quantitative Health at Mass General Hospital, about the findings.
This show is the only reason I’m surviving the pandemic
When the pandemic hit, all I did was cry. My life was falling apart. My ASD child was violently lashing out because she didn’t understand what was going on. Life was unbearable. Arun’s steady voice and heartfelt interviews kept me going. Arun never told me that things were fine but he reminded me that we are in it together.
