Seg. 1: COVID-19's Frontline Fighters | Seg. 2: Dividing Household Chores
Segment 1: Health care workers continue to work in unsafe environments.
A lack of protective gear and the silent nature of COVID-19 are just two new concerns piled on top of existing ones Kansas City health care providers deal with during the pandemic. Many are already coming to terms with the idea they will likely contract the virus.
- Dr. Allison Edwards, owner of Kansas City Direct Primary Care
- Heidi Lucas, state director of Missouri Nurses Association
Segment 2, beginning at 35:45: Getting house work done while working from home
Has the work-from-home nature of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic changed the division of labor when it comes to household chores or child care? We explored the implications of such a shift, and whether they stand to persist after work-arrangements return to normal.
- Francine Deutsch, author of "Halving it All: How Equally Shared Parenting Works," and professor emerita of psychology at Mt. Holyoke College
