Mershon Niesner has stayed connected with the “Stories of” project over the years.  In this first interview, she describes the changes she’s seen in the world due to the paradigm shift brought by high-tech.  Five years later, she reconnected with me to interview for my new project, “Stories of COVID™”, to describe the paradigm shift she’s witnessing in a pandemic.  Listen to that interview here:–Mershon-Niesner–Stages-of-Grief-ed87bj
