*This hour includes an update on the coronavirus pandemic from WXXI's health reporter, Brett Dahlberg.

The great Dolly Parton recently said on her podcast that she is recording music intended to be released after her passing. She's in good health! But she's thinking beyond her living years.

Our guests discuss the value of doing work that will outlive all of us, whether it's related to climate change, art, culture, or something else. Let's get a little weird and existential. Our guests:

  • Jake Wojtowicz, ethics and philosophy writer, and professor of ethics at Brockport
  • Hannah Davis, visiting lecturer at RIT
  • Susan Levin, coordinator of the Rochester Women's Bike Festival
