Happy Friday! After some technical difficulties early in the week, we brought you a timely round-up of research on waiting and cover some new research on how gendered care work affects anxiety about covid-19. Plus, as always, great content from our partners and community pages.

There’s Research on That:

We All Hate to Wait; Research Explains Why by Nick Mathews. We round up research on why we hate waiting, how technology helps us pass the time, and power and inequality in waiting.


Care Works Matters for Covid Worry by Mahala Miller. We cover new research by Janani Umamaheswar  and Catherine Tan that finds that differences in care work responsibilities underlie disparities in men and women’s covid worry.
