This follows five essential workers and their families as they grapple with anxiety and the need for honesty–and how race impacts every interaction and decision they make. The series shows that maybe all those isolated incidents aren’t so isolated after all. This series is both specific to 2020 and universal, looking at how a once-in-a-century public health crisis exposes the things that were always there. This majority-BIPOC majority-queer collective of writers capture stories that center the invisible front line – workers who are essential inside of the pandemic, and the lives they lead behind the job. The stories that don’t make the headlines but are just as important.
What happens to creatives and the creative process when the world is social distancing and self-isolating to combat a growing global pandemic? Journalist, writer, and professional host Angélique Roché sits down with to ask that question of creatives across sectors. Join Angélique for exciting, motivational, incisive — and always funny — conversations with writers, journalists, athletes, actors, singers, performers, musicians and producers. They’ll talk about how they are handling the unexpected and historical gaps in production and the “physical creative process.” Creative Quarantine airs as a live video conversation on Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday at 3PM EST/12 PM PST and on Tuesday at 2PM EST/11 AM PST. Podcasts are available the next day, wherever you listen to podcasts.
