Pandemic, Unemployment Insurance, National Park, Creemee

In Vermont Viewpoint by WDEV Radio

UVM Sociology Professor Alice Fothergill studies disasters. She has turned her attention to the COVID-19 pandemic and the impact on children and elderly populations and opens the show sharing what she has found. Next, as the extended unemployment insurance benefits come to an end, we’ll hear about what those people collecting unemployment need to know and about what local support is available to them. After that, we’ll learn about when the idea of a Green Mountain National Park was proposed and why it might be time for this to happen now. And we finish the show in the most delicious way possible, with a visit to Canteen Creemee in Waitsfield.
