Comms from the Shed: interviewing diverse voices on our present and the future.

Comms from the Shed: interviewing diverse voices on our present and the future.


Following a 20-year career in communications, like so many friends, peers and ex-colleagues I found myself working from home 100% of the time. In this series I hear from a range of interesting and diverse voices about their response to the Covid-19 coronavirus pandemic, their health and wellbeing, creativity in adverse times, and our shared hopes for the future.
