THE PLAGUE YEAR America in the Time of Covid

by | Read by Eric Jason Martin

Contemporary Culture • 11.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2021

Completely predictable. That's the refrain throughout Wright's thorough evaluation of the year the world faced the crippling COVID-19 pandemic. Narrator Eric Jason Martin takes a documentarian approach as Wright frames the pandemic in historic terms: He provides details of the protests against precautions that took place during the 1918 influenza pandemic and points out that 2020 featured unique problems and deliberate confusion created by the Trump administration. State governors found themselves bidding against each other for needed masks and supplies, only to lose to the federal government, leaving thousands without needed protective equipment. Martin is unwaveringly direct and clear in his excellent performance, leaving listeners to wonder: What have we learned? S.P.C. © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2021]
