2.8. Satire in Lockdown 2: Staying Alert


Listen to the episode! 

As unprecedented times become the new normal, Jo and Adam return for another unprecedented episode which follows the precedent set by the last unprecedented episode they released in May. That’s right, it’s time for another Satire in Lockdown Round-Up! With the government’s new and confusing message proving almost as viral as the virus, the PM’s chief advisor flagrantly breaking the rules he helped to write and everyone else communicating almost exclusively through Zoom, there’s been plenty of fodder for the satirists.
