'Disrupted' debuted on Connecticut Public on October 7, 2020. At the time, the 2020 general election was still weeks away. The world was less than a year into the COVID-19 pandemic. And, the United States was grappling with the deaths of Breonna Taylor and George Floyd at the hands of law enforcement.

As we near our 100th episode, we invite three prominent former guests back to the program to take a look at the last two years.
