Podcast #296 – Is the Pandemic Over? A look at our divided world with Washington Post editor Marc Fisher
In this episode, I speak to Marc Fisher, a senior editor at The Washington Post. Marc has a fascinating article titled Is the Pandemic Over? The pre-Covid activities that Americans are (and aren’t) resuming. Biden says the pandemic is over — and when it comes to casinos, concerts and cosmetic procedures, Americans seem to be on the same page. But not so much for theatre, therapy and funerals.
I think you’ll find our discussion of how divided we are quite fascinating.
We all make individual decisions based on our risk appetite. I liked Marc’s analogy of a triage nurse deciding who gets treatment next. When we decide whether to travel by plane, go to a wedding, go to the office, or go to the movies, we make individual decisions about how much risk we are willing to take. If one person sees going to the cinema as safe, others see it as extremely risky.
This is a fascinating topic and an exciting discussion.
Here is a bit of Marc’s bio from the Washington Post website:
Marc Fisher, executive editor of The Washington Post, reports and writes on a wide variety of topics. Among other things, he has been a company editor, local columnist and Berlin office manager for over 30 years. Fisher wrote several Post articles that won the 2016 Pulitzer Prize for National Reporting and the 2014 Pulitzer Prize for Public Service. Fisher previously wrote the Post’s local column and blog, Raw Fisher. He was previously the newspaper’s special reports editor, wrote on politics and culture for the Style section, served as head of the Central Europe bureau on the Post’s international staff, and reported on DC schools and DC politics for the Metro section, where he also assistant was city editor.
