The 'Prelude To A Voice Memo' episode • Buddy's Buddies #016

GREETINGS FROM MARGATE!

Greetings to you wherever you are right now, at this current moment in time and, well, history.

I trust you’re doing as good as can be expected - salutes to you, and huge love in abundance. I know this sounds like a vague catch-all thing to say but I mean it. I hope you’re doing alright.

This episode is a bit different. It’s a solo episode, but in many ways, I’m merely setting the stage for YOU to be the guest. Here’s the plan… So in Margate (and Thanet on the whole), there has been a real sense of amazing community spirit in this unprecedented time. I feel like we haven’t been through something like this and we don’t know the parameters, but within that chaos, there are some incredible examples of kindness and community assistance, fuelled by thoughtful and considerate acts which have really made me smile.

What I want to do with THIS episode then, is hear from YOU. If you are a business in Thanet, record a voice memo and email it to me at:


buddysbuddies@protonmail.com


Let me know who you are, what you might be doing and how it all works, and if you’re feeling up for it, how YOU’RE doing / coping / any recommendations, whatever you like.

BUT - this is also open to anyone who wants to chime in. Please do. I really want you to. Let’s treat this like an audio diary. Maybe even therapy? I don’t know. But I do know that in a time of isolation and distancing, we gotta connect and let each other know where we’re at.

If possible, if you can keep it to like 3-5 minutes or so that’d be mad helpful. I’ll be editing so don’t worry if you don’t get it spot on - just get it done and sent! Leave the rest to me.

We’ll see what happens. But please do it. I’m so excited to see and hear the results. I’ll assemble them soon as I can and soon as I have a good amount, as I know that in terms of businesses and shops, the situation might change so I’ll do my best.


Alright. Stay safe as you can. Drink water. Take time to think about other stuff. Thank you so much folks, I really hope we can get this voice memo thing to work out! Bigups and salutes X
