This podcast is dedicated to anyone who lost a loved-one, their job or livelihood during the pandemic. Our thoughts are with you. We are aware that many people were much more seriously affected by the events of the last few months than the characters in this drama. The story is not intended to be representative of the entire population but merely to the experiences of the characters depicted.
