Episode 208: Coronapocalypse Now

Joe and I take a break from the usual format to discuss the frankly freaking weird and scary times we’re living in – and decide my job is to bring a little levity to things (without making light of actual awfulness of course). Tune in and find out how working from home together is going, why we don’t need to panic-buy toilet roll or vegan food, and how we’re getting people together and making them uncomfortable using technology.

Key Points

  • [2:50] Vicky really likes to touch her face.
  • [3:50] A lot of businesses aren’t going to recover from this. That is absolutely terrible.
  • [5:00] It’s a zombie apocalypse. The stores are so barren.
  • [6:15] Check on your elderly neighbours.
  • [8:25] People in China can see the sky for the first time because there is less pollution.
  • [12:20] Do not stop marketing! There is going to be an end to this.
  • [14:55] So many new business services and models are going to be coming out of this.
  • [15:55] When you get scared, you get tunnel vision. Remember that there is a way out of this, and to focus on the bigger picture.
  • [17:20] Now is our time to help keep small businesses afloat.
  • [19:55] How has Joe enjoyed working from home so far?
  • [23:00] Vicky will be hosting a virtual get together.
  • [27:15] What’s the takeaway? Be kind to each other.
