About the Podcast

The Covid-19 pandemic has turned our world upside down. From how we work and how we live to the very basics of human interaction - we're having to adapt to ways of life we never thought possible.

One thing is certain, nothing will ever be the same.

As we look to life beyond the virus, we ask: so now what?

With the help of experts in their fields, each episode Waleed Aly explores a different aspect of our lives, how it's been impacted by the coronavirus and just what we can expect on the other side.

Social Cohesion

The Covid-19 pandemic has strained the cohesiveness of our society. People are becoming more and more divergent in their views, and more and more distrusting of opposing views. A lot of people feel more marginalised and categorised while some seek strongly to find someone to blame for this crisis.

What will the effect of this be for society in the future? Joining Waleed to discuss this is Professor Michele Grossman, Research Chair in Diversity and Community Resilience at the Alfred Deakin Institute and Dr Rebecca Huntley, Principal at Vox Populi Research.
