Another perspective to the current ‘COVID-19-driven housing herd’

Plot Twist On the Media

From boosters to breakthrough infections, pandemic vocabulary is still all over the news. On this week’s On the Media, why the terms we use to talk about the virus obscure as much as they reveal. And, why the history of medical progress is filled with so many twists and turns. Plus, why a preference for simple stories has made it so hard to keep track of the pandemic.  1. Katherine J. Wu [@KatherineJWu], staff writer at The Atlantic, on the slippery definitions of our pandemic vocabulary. Listen. 2. Dr. Paul Offit [@DrPaulOffit], professor of pediatrics at the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania, on why medical progress always carries risk. Listen. 3. OTM correspondent Micah Loewinger [@MicahLoewinger] speaks with Soren Wheeler [@SorenWheeler] and Rachael Piltch-Loeb [@Rpiltchloeb] about why the narrative arc of the COVID-19 pandemic has been deeply unsatisfying. With some help from Kurt Vonnegut. Listen. Music: In the Bath – Randy Newman Milestones – Bill Evans Trio Paperback Writer – Quartetto d'Archi Dell'orchestra Sinfonica di Giuseppe Verdi Quizas Quizas Quizas – Ramon Sole  Misterioso – Kronos Quartet Bewitched, Bothered and Bewildered – Brad Mehldau Trio

City planner working to help communities develop more equitably. More homes and more affordable homes. Integrated with mixed use centers or pockets of retail, commerce, government, entertainment, education and more. Woven into nature that we preserve for future generations. An improved transportation network to help people get from their home to where they want to go. On foot, by bike, on scooter, by auto, on metro, by bus, and more. We have the intellectual capital. We need more federal, state and local capital. We will act using multiple forms of information and communication that includes our experiences and feedback from our neighbors and peers from many backgrounds and perspectives. Perhaps we'll have some fun along the way.
