Oct 2, 2020

With a dramatice decline in COVID-19 cases across the University of Georgia, Dr. Grace Bagwell Adams, Associate Professor from the UGA College of Public Health, joins us with a look at the pandemic’s progress in Athens.

As most of Athens’ extraordinary local music scene remains shuttered, venue owners are eagerly awaiting the day that they can again offer live music. Join us as we speak to local owners, Velena Vego, Seth Hendershot, and Drew Beskin about how the pandemic has impacted their businesses.
