In the first of a series for Steady Habits sponsored by CTrides, we look at the impact of COVID-19 on businesses, their employees, and Connecticut’s roadways and transit systems.

Are Connecticut employees returning to the workplace in person? How can our transportation infrastructure accommodate and facilitate that process?

John Dankosky is joined by Chris DiPentima of the CBIA, Orlena Cowan-Bailey of the Connecticut SHRM state council and Rich Andreski of the CT DOT, to explore the latest developments as the state tries to achieve a new normal.

John is CT Mirror's Director of Events. A well-known and highly-regarded radio personality and moderator, he divides his time between CT Mirror — where he heads up our events program and serves as a multi-platform consultant — and the NPR / PRI program Science Friday. Previously, John was executive editor of the New England News Collaborative and the host of NEXT, a weekly program about New England. He also appeared weekly on The Wheelhouse, WNPR’s news roundtable program. His 25 years in public media also include serving as vice president of news for Connecticut Public Broadcasting Network, host of WNPR’s Where We Live, and regular fill-in host for the PRI program Science Friday in New York. He was twice recognized by PRNDI as America’s best public radio call-in show.
