The Shoestring’s Covid data columnist Joe Pater joins us to discuss how public information about the virus has been disseminated and how it hasn’t. He compares the local response to that in his home town in Ontario, exposing the scattershot standards between different municipal responses and much more. Pater is a linguistics professor at UMASS Amherst.
