About this Episode

In this episode we talk about risk. When there's a pandemic and you have choices of what to do and where to go, how do you make them? Are we good at assessing risk? What kind of factors influence what kind of risks we're willing to take? Can we be trusted to make good decisions in the age of Covid-19?

Our conversation was inspired by a piece in the Atlantic written by Tess Wilkinson-Ryan. You can find it here: https://www.theatlantic.com/ideas/archive/2020/07/reopening-psychological-morass/613858/.
