Show Notes Chapter Markers

In our final episode of season 1, we take a look at the week in numbers, talk about what we learned and what surprised us during this inaugural Oh This World season, and share our recs for what we're listening to, reading and watching to stay grounded in this unsettling time.

The Johns Hopkins Coronavirus Resource Center dashboard is available here. You can read the Kyle Swenson story on the origins of the dashboard in the Washington Post. The Texas Tribune has more on coronavirus in Texas and on Gov. Abbott's mask mandate.

The NBC News story on the end of the federal unemployment benefit is here. Olúfẹ́mi Táíwò's Washington Post column on the need for a Truth and Reconciliation Commission in America is here.

Our weekend recs?

Antoinette suggests Knives Out, while Lucas recommends the must-see documentary Welcome to Chechnya on HBO, about the anti-LGBT atrocities happening there, and the activists who are fighting back. He also suggests the horror podcast Radio Rental.

We've had a great time Oh This World-ing with you this season. See you in August for Season 2!
