The first few months of the pandemic saw an upward curve of podcast initiatives trying to report on COVID-19. In March, the American magazine The Atlantic started their version Social Distance, in which ‘how to live through a pandemic’ was the main question. Each episode tackles a question about the coronavirus and our response—from the big societal questions to practical advice for individuals. The weekly podcast is available on all podcast platforms, but The Atlantic also provides written transcripts of each episode online.
