Rural Routes Podcast
Season 3: Episode 11
Rural & Island Response to COVID-19
Geography matters. And when it comes to pandemics such as this COVID-19 one that we find ourselves in the middle of, how we respond to pandemics is very much influenced by geography. That curiosity about geographically distinct responses to COVID-19 pandemic is very much behind two research projects we are going to talk about today. The first one was initiated by The Canadian Rural Revitalization Foundation. It looked at rural responses to the pandemic in Canada. The second project was initiated at the University of Strathclyde in Glasgow and it looked at how small islands around the world responded to COVID19 pandemic. 
Season 3: Episode 10
Rural Trauma
This episode of Rural Routes features Dr. Kathleen Kevany from the Faculty of Agriculture at Dalhousie University in Truro, Nova Scotia. She is the director of the Rural Research Collaborative and a licensed psychotherapist who studies community development, community well-being and social change. We reached out to Dr. Kevany in the aftermath of a mass shooting in rural Nova Scotia to help us understand the impacts such traumatic events have on rural regions and communities and what we can do to help us get through such difficult events.
