I think a cool idea for a ds106 radio show would be centered around talking about students going back to school or people going back to work during the pandemic. Not more so about the politics – whether it’s a good idea or not for health reasons, but more so focused on the experiences. How has conducting in-person/online classes impacted the way students learn, how much time they spend on schoolwork, how their personal lives have been affected, etc. What have been the effects on one’s mental health during this time? It would be interesting to have some of us speak personally about our experiences with both or whichever one we’ve had to experience. We can come up with specific topics to address over the course of the radio show session as well for better organization. I’d call it The Pandemic Pod because 1. we’re in a pandemic and 2. I think the concept of quarantine and having to do everything in a metaphorical bubble just made me think of a pod. It’s a working title though.
