This round table aimed at observing different aural cultural popular forms (music, podcasts, etc.) which addressed the human and economic effects of the COVID19 crisis in the West of the United States, with a particular emphasis on those emerging from the US-Mexico border. Starting from the premise that the crisis affected all human beings around the world, the round table aimed to observe the way “the people” integrated the effects of the pandemic both in their personal and social daily life.
