Sickly sweet, "tripping through the tulips", slightly weird approach to broaching the big subjects. Occasionally inappropriately light-hearted about tragic events, I feel. Has the air of journos getting together for a pint after work...in the sense that they are a little hardened to things we "Joe Publics" might be a little more sensitive about. Have a listen and make your own mind up!

Hi Adam, just to let you know that staff in Primary schools and nursery settings do not wear PPE whilst with the children, and neither do the children! And most of the time we can't maintain a distance of 2m. My classroom certainly isn't big enough. We have had to have all the windows open theoughout the winter - even in the freezing temperatures and yet we have not been prioritised for the jab (and neither have the police or fire srevice 😢) Wish us luck as we return to full classrooms and no PPE on 8th March. 🤞

Firstly, I'm loving the podcast and really appreciate that you present the news in an informed, non-sensastionalised way. That said, I was surprised today to hear one of the speakers use the term 'chink' (e.g. in the armour of) when referring to Nicola Sturgeon's pandemic response. I'm sure no offense was intended but language is important and (as someone pointed out to me) it's important to speak up so we can all learn to do better. Cheers!
