We take another trip around the world for this episode, to Costa Rica, to hear about how the pandemic has impacted people there. ATMI senior producer Daisy Carter has family who live in Costa Rica. Her cousin Andres Canas came up to Alaska to visit this spring.
They sat down to talk about how the pandemic has affected life for him, his friends and family, and the different ways Costa Rica has responded to the virus.
They spoke on April 8th, 2021.
Hosted by Tyler Felson.
Interview edited by Ormund Alaois.
Music by Devin Shreckengost and Kendrick Whiteman.
