#264 The Covid Tapes (Frank Turner)
Life In The Stocks
This week marks three years since the world went into lockdown following the global outbreak of COVID-19. I've been thinking about that strange and surreal time quite a bit recently, and now feels like the right time to share this series of interviews that I did during the first lockdown period for my supporters over on Patreon. I spent a whole month uploading a new episode every weekday, and for each episode I was joined by past podcast guests and friends of the show. We spoke about our mutual lockdown experiences and attempted to make sense of everything that was going on at that time, and each guest handpicked a five-song playlist to the end of the world, hence the name of the series: Soundtrack Apocalypse. I've renamed them The Covid Tapes here. I hope you enjoy this peculiar little trip down memory lane. It still feels like a bit of a dream/nightmare doesn't it?!? Thank "whoever" it's all over now. I'm very thankful to be working again. And I'm extremely grateful to everyone who supported me during this time, especially the Patreon crew without whom I never would've made it. Thank you.
