For those that have had and recovered from the coronavirus, the symptoms can really vary. Some people are asymptomatic and may not even know they have the virus. But others, like Libby Pederson, had a very different experience altogether.

Libby is a born and raised Alaskan who has been teaching special-ed for twenty years in Anchorage. She spoke with ATMI producer Danielle DuClos to talk about her unique experience with Covid.

They spoke over Zoom on January 29th, 2021.

Hosted by Daisy Carter.

Music by Devin Shreckenghost and Kendrick Whiteman.
