As the global pandemic spreads we're all doing what we can to manage. The other pandemic is anxiety, so I wanted to create some free content which is useful for keyworkers and carers of all kinds, and to provide content which gives us something else to think about too. Featuring guest interviews with key workers, experts by experience and professional experts offering advice.
In Episode 10 I talk to comedian and writer David Baddiel about his dad Colin who has Pick's Disease, the complexity of truth, social media and political tribalism.
In this episode I talk to Jim Hawkins radio presenter on BBC Radio Shropshire about the importance of local radio during the pandemic, twitter trolls and mental health in the time of the pandemic and to Gail Renard writer, BAFTA member and former chair of the Writer's Guild of Great Britain, about interviewing John Lennon, female writing representation and her new children's show Monty & Co.
