Life in lockdown: Nine oral historians head (digitally) inside 25 unique New Zealand bubbles to capture your Aotearoa as you made history. Produced by Manatū Taonga, Ministry for Culture and Heritage and Auckland Libraries with the support of the communities of Aotearoa.
Episode 5: We Connected
What effect did this enforced isolation have on how we connected with ourselves, our loved ones and our communities, and what lessons did we take with us when we left our bubbles?
Episode 4: We Moved
How did we keep moving when we had to stay put? Find out how those ‘government-mandated walks’ helped us stay sane and some health workers kept their spirits up with clinic waiting room dance-offs.
Episode 3: We Learned
We Learned: From grappling with video calls to the highs and lows of homeschooling, parents, backpackers and a dance teacher reveal how they taught others and what they learned about themselves.
Episode 2: We Cared
How do you lockdown if you do not have a home and how do health workers protect their families when they arrive home from the frontlines? In this episode we hear about housing the homeless and nursing under extraordinary circumstances.
Episode 1: We Prepared
When the prime minister appears on your TV flanked by two New Zealand flags you know things are getting serious, but how do you prepare for an invisible threat? In this episode whānau and health and airline workers talk about how they got ready.
I am enjoying this podcast so much! I can really relate to the experiences of the interviewees and I love the positive tone.
