Season 2 just launched and is 3 episodes deep. “Season 2 begins with intimate stories of care workers and the people they care for. But their issues are larger than just one story. We connect these personal and compelling stories to the broader policy landscape – through interviews with nursing home leaders, policymakers, union activists, and more. And we ask: What kinds of long term care policies do we need so that anyone can receive quality, affordable care?”
