The story Cycle 


“Bicycling Route 66 Chicago to L.A. during  America’s Deadliest Pandemic”

Chicago Tribune Arts Front Page

Chicago Tribune Front Page “Arts”

Starting out in snowy Chicago in February at the height of Covid-19, I rode my old Panasonic bicycle along “America’s Main Street” asking everyday Americans about their Covid experiences. 

Videotaping their short (mostly 5-minute) responses, I posted interviews with more than 100 people on YouTube. 

The University of Florida’s Samuel Proctor Oral History Program edited, archived, and posted the interviews on their sites.

Deepen your understanding of WHY and HOW Americans are coming to their beliefs about masking & vaccines. 

Humans have been surviving pandemics and plagues since we evolved. These are the stories we tell ourselves to survive America’s deadliest pandemic in history.

Watch for it! Coming out in late fall!
