Suddenly we've become a culture in Quarantine! The way we interact has changed…. rapidly!

Amy Powell and I sat down to chat about it. We talk about everything from the interesting choices in movies that are trending right now, to what we’ve learned by observing a variety of reactions to the news of this pandemic.
