The Evidence-to-Impact Podcast's new series, The Pandemic Perspective, examines how the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and various aspects of our society, institutions, and other systems have collided, changed, and even collapsed in the last nine months.
This month’s episode features a two-part discussion about government, primarily at the local and state levels, transitions to remote work, unemployment and the recession, the messaging behind school closings/mask wearing, the 2020 Election, COVID-19 vaccines distribution, and everything in between. We spoke with Commissioner Mike Pipe, Centre County Chair of the Board of Commissioners and Co-Chair of the Election Board of Centre County, and Dr. Chris Witko, associate director of the School of Public Policy and professor of public policy and political science at Penn State. This episode is broken into two parts and will be released biweekly.
