Jim Ellermeyer welcomes back singer/songwriter Liss Victory to the show as we discuss her recent move to New York City in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic. How did a realization of being “objectively tragic” helped make a the decision for her. We talk about her trip out and traveling from Pittsburgh on a train during the height of Coronavirus just before lockdowns and finding compassion on the way, readapting to the New York life, and the zeitgeist of New York during lockdown, her own experience being a denier, and we begin a conversation about what qualities of Governor Andrew Cuomo that instill trust.
