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. Episode 5, "Tensions Rising: Domestic Abuse" spotlights the increased tension of lockdown on those living with domestic abuse and features Paige Cadman of Hilltop's Latimer House. While the Colorado Governor declares a state of "Safer at Home," what is the impact on people whose homes present the threat of violence and danger? How can survivors seek out the vital services when their abusers are now a constant presence?
