With vaccines on the way and a more widespread understanding of our individual responsibilities to stop the pandemic, hopefully 2021 will be a better year than 2020. In this episode, we summarize our experiences and observations from COVID-19 by discussing 10 'lessons' that we feel the lockdowns have taught or exposed, both to individuals and to society at large. We tried to infuse the conversation with a positivity and willingness to adapt and learn from mistakes, rather than the usual doom & gloom that accompanies pandemic discourse.
