“This pandemic informs every decision for how we work, learn, travel and play — essentially, how we live,” says Anna Maria Tremonti, who hosts the J-Talks Live series and is also the host of More, the CBC podcast. “And entwined throughout is an economic fallout that we still can’t completely fathom. I look forward to Heather, a four-time National Newspaper Award winner, shedding light on what she’s learning as she tracks the political decisions that signal the risks and opportunities that lie ahead.”
