Episode notes

The city of Patterson, California is better known globally as the "Apricot Capital of the World", but for a smaller population of local residents, it's also becoming known for its recent launch of a digital inclusion program for seniors. The pandemic focused attention on digital inequalities in education, but others also felt the negative effect. This is why officials for the city of Patterson decided to address this lack of computer literacy among seniors. In doing so, not only are they making the world more accessible for the elderly in the community, but consequently, less lonely as well.
