Stephen // Contracting COVID-19

Stephen detais his experience of contracting the coronavirus back in late February/early March of 2020, before lockdowns shut NYC down. He also shares how the busy Brooklyn music scene he’s a part of may have helped to spread it among his friends before people knew how serious the pandemic would turn out to be–and perhaps already was, in retrospect–along with his thoughts on the response to the crisis and how, while hard to live through, it’s confirmed why he loves the city.

1st Person is presented by Urban Outfitters.

Music featured in the episode: “Featherweight” by Fleet Foxes
