Humboldt Today with John Kennedy O'Connor
HSU Professor Talks Teaching Online, Wishes Prez Jackson Would Answer Students, Has Named Her Sourdough Starter ‘Herschel’
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.
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.
