    22 May: Building back better

    How is our thinking changing and our focus shifting as we move along the pandemic curve? We hear from Cllr Abi Brown, the Leader of Stoke-on-Trent City Council about the importance of thinking space and the challenges of response and recovery. We also hear from a husband and wife who lived through ebola epidemic in Sierra Leone. They tell us how what it felt like to emerge from an epidemic and provide insight into whether it's possible to return to a new normal that builds on the lessons we've learned in the pandemic.

    Covid-19, common problems and common spaces

    We're meant to stay home to stay lives, but with glorious Spring weather in the northern hemisphere, some people are finding the outdoors too tempting. Jonathan Carr-West and Ingrid Koehler take the podcast outside this week with reflections on public space, this common experience and the safe and appropriate use of the commons.
    We talk to Cllr Jack Hopkins the leader of Lambeth Council on why they shut down Brockwell Park and how we need to behave to keep it open. We also talk to Plymouth Council leader Tudor Evans on compliance there and find out how he's been supporting the local economy with his fishing cookery videos. And we hear from Shirley Sessions, the Mayor of Tybee Island, a coastal resort community in Georgia, USA about their decision to close the beaches and what it means to this tiny community to have the decision overturned by the Governor of Georgia.
