This week on Alaska, Interrupted: Miriam Aarons was taking serious precautions against COVID-19, wiping down grocery deliveries and only handling mail with gloves. When she tested positive nonetheless, she faced some dark moments, drafting goodbye letters to her children -- but she pulled through with help from her father, a retired doctor.
Julia O’Malley is holding down her high-pressure job as an editor at Alaska’s Energy Desk, while stuck in her house with her two young boys. And while dealing with all the anxiety that comes with a global pandemic.
In Alaska Interrupted, we hope to share the stories of regular people and offer listeners a measure of solidarity during a tough, lonely time.
