Homestyle: Connecting While Being Socially Distant

On this week’s episode of Homestyle, reporter Leigh Guidry and I talk about the struggles that come from trying to maintain human contact while being told to shelter in place. It comes in the form of Zoom meetings, FaceTime, and sometimes just a drive-by waving of friends and family.

One of the things I’m hoping for when all this is said and done is that we remember the importance of face-to-face interaction. We spend so much time looking at the world through our screens and not enough time interacting with each other in person. We’ll sit at a dinner table and text our thoughts rather than speak them.

The Homestyle Podcast is a joint venture between myself and one of my best friends, education reporter Leigh Guidry. Throughout each episode, we discuss cooking, crafting, and other hobbies as well as how we make sure to spend time with our families despite how insanely busy life can be. The goal of the podcast has always been to take a moment to focus on what’s really important because, at the end of the day, family and life is more important than whatever distractions are going on in the world around us.
