Back in March, many of us hoped that the coronavirus would be a blip on our personal landscapes. We assumed that with a few weeks of high-intensity safeguards, the COVID-19 virus would slink away, like a vampire at sunrise.

Alas, the virus has not been cooperative. Measures we thought might last just a short time have become, in some respects, a “new normal.” And even when a semblance of normality truly does return, some things will never be the same again. The entertainment industry may be forever changed going forward. We’ve grown even more dependent on technology for both work and play. And how our families interact with that entertainment and technology will surely be different in the future, too.

But how?

That’s what Adam Holz and our panel of Plugged In experts banter about on this week’s podcast. They’ll talk about how their own habits have changed over the past few months and how the world might be changed in the months and years and decades to come.

But while the world may be changing, one thing is constant: We always love to have you join us. Click here to listen in, or subscribe wherever fine podcasts are sold.
