Not quite charity, but certainly cheering people up

Jacob Hawley discusses what life in lockdown means to keyworkers and creative freelancers.

On this week’s episode, Jacob talks to Blue Peter’s newest presenter Mwaksy Mudenda about taking on a flagship show from her bedroom and Bethany Wells, a theatre designer who has set up a micro grant scheme for artists ineligible for other support. He also hears from furloughed chef Ben Miller who has set up his own cook at home business, Deliveroo cyclist Tom, and Absolute Radio presenter / Bread King Ross Buchanan.
