Since then, the novel coronavirus has affected the entirety of the American government, with much of the government workforce working remotely during the crisis. Massive programs were enacting, including the $2T-plus CARES Act. The Coronavirus Task Force was convened. Much of the American government shifted to focusing on the crisis.
To mark our 100th episode, Eric Katz, Courtney Bublé and Katherine McIntire Peters joined the show to discuss the pandemic through three federal lenses: The workforce, oversight of programs and the leadership from the Trump administration.
