If you want to explore the societal impact of the coronavirus pandemic, you might just have to fire up a stream in your living room. Oprah Winfrey has launched a free Apple TV+ series, Oprah Talks COVID-19, that has her talking to "experts and everyday people" about how people can deal with the virus while maintaining their humanity. There are two episodes at present, including a chat with Idris Elba (who tested positive for COVID-19) and his wife Sabrina Dhowre as well as a spirituality-focused discussion with Pastor Wintley Phipps.

You won't want to tune in for medical advice, and this is arguably a way to steer viewers toward Oprah's other Apple TV+ work. You can get a good look at her discussion with Elba and Dhowre in the Twitter video below. Still, this series doesn't need a subscription -- it might not hurt to tune in if you're looking for something to keep you grounded in a difficult time.
