TODAY ON THE JAY DOHERTY PODCAST:
Coronavirus continues to grow and politics continues to interrupt. As the intensity of the virus grows, so does the partisanship on both sides. I’ll continue my monologue about the scary models released by the CDC. How is the U.S. Government doing in these tough times?
Also, some tech news to drift away from the usual these days… Apple continues to make the headlines despite the omnipresent COVID-19. The company recently purchased the popular weather app “Dark Sky” and they are going to be pulling the plug on the Android version. Also, cell phone carrier T-Mobile has acquired its steadfast competitor Sprint… what do these changes mean and how will they affect the millions of people who use those services every day?
Finally, an interview with someone who is using COVID-19 as an opportunity to entertain. Music influencer Michael Heidemann has been hosting live streams where he — and various artists around the country — are casually performing songs over the internet to occupy and delight the many people who are required to stay inside these days. He deems these “Lockdown Livestreams”. Where can you listen to Michael, how often is he doing this, and how did he come up with this idea in the first place?
