For the last few weeks, your human interaction-starved Lost Coast Outpost has been Zoom-tracking down local humans because a) we are lonely, and b) we want to know how our neighbors are dealing with quasi-existence under COVID-19. 

Professor Deidre misses her students

This week, we convince Humboldt State University journalism professor Deidre Pike to spend some socially distanced time in front of her computer with us to share how life not on campus has been for her and her students. Other topics discussed with LoCO’s Stephanie McGeary and Andrew Goff include: Her critique of HSU President Tom Jackson’s availability during the pandemic; how Fox News has allowed her to bond with her 90-year-old father; and the somewhat concerning close relationship she maintains with her beloved sourdough goo.
