TOP 5 SPOKEN-WORD PODCASTS FOR SELF-ISOLATION

Self-isolation day ???, we’re losing track.

It’s getting to the point where the novelty of not having to physically go to work is wearing off. The half an hour extra in bed every morning isn’t worth the lack of social interaction… 

Despite having a wealth of social media apps that help to keep us all connected, we can’t help but feel disconnected from the rest of the world at the moment.

So, how do we maintain our societal engagement whilst practicing social distancing?
