Episode 412: Things Are Changing Quickly

Manton and Daniel take stock of Covid-19’s increasing impact. They follow up on the JocoCruise, including news that John Hodgman was not allowed to sail because of past travel to Italy. They react to suspensions of sporting leagues, and the disease-mitigating actions many businesses are taking. Finally, they consider the viability of working remotely for Apple teams including app review and hardware engineering.
