COVID-19 touched every part of our lives — but what will the D.C. area look like as the pandemic fades?
“Is It Normal Yet?” hosts Luke Garrett and Laura Spitalniak document the region’s return to public life after more than a year of isolation. A WTOP reporter joins them each week to talk about their coverage area — topics like sports, schools and the court system — and break down how the region is returning to normal.
These conversations explain which changes are here to stay and what “normal” really means now. Listeners will hear stories about the entertainment venues that survived, the trends that surfaced in local crime and social organizing’s shift through the pandemic.
Luke and Laura created the podcast after asking each other the question that became the show’s namesake — “is it normal yet?”
New episodes are released every Monday. Tune in and learn about how the D.C. area is emerging from the pandemic.
