Counterprogramming in the Time of Coronavirus

March 26, 2020

There’s only so much hitting the refresh button we can do before we reach peak news burnout during an extended crisis. And in this time of coronavirus, even the extroverts among us may have crashed into the “too much ZOOM, too many Hang Outs” wall. We took an informal survey to see how we on the diocesan staff are counterprogramming COVID-19 during our off-work hours. From books to gaming, podcasts to Netflix bingeables, and from the purely escapist to the deeply thought-provoking, here’s our best of the best:
