This week, Alex talks to a funeral director and a Rabbi about how Covid-19 is affecting our regular rituals -- which also happen to be their jobs. First, she talks to funeral director Mark Flower about how he's handled new restrictions on funeral services as well as an increased demand for his business. Then, Alex talks to Rabbi Brous, who explains how the Jewish community she leads in Los Angeles is adapting to a ban on religious gatherings, and how everyone can find meaning from religion at this time.
