In an effort to document the unique Zeitgeist of the COVID-19 pandemic, Crossing the Divide has created a limited video series, Life Under Lockdown, where we interview individuals, businesses and organizations impacted by a society in limbo while the battle against an insidious disease rages all around us. How has a life under lockdown altered our realities and how will it continue to shape human existence moving forward? To keep our podcast listeners occupied while we channel efforts toward this video endeavor, we are releasing the audio track from this video, recorded via Zoom and available in video format on our Facebook page and YouTube channel. In Episode 1, we chat with Colorado Mesa University's Elaine Venter - our first ever podcast guest! - whose teaching emphasizes mass and emerging media with an interest in social media, gaming and media accessibility on the internet. We discuss how social distancing has altered how we utilize and interact on social media platforms and how the shift to minimalism in media production might well continue into the future.
