Produced by:

In the first of a two-part interview, Bill Resnick interviews Ted Levine, a New York City nurse working on the frontlines of the pandemic. They discuss official incompetence and venality, lack of preparation for the pandemic, cuts in public health funding in pursuit profit, the inequities that lead to higher burden of illness on people of color and the risks front line workers face.
