Isolation + Me: Where are they now? Part 3
Hellllllllllooooo again! Back for the last installment of Isolation + Me, at least for now...  In this episode I catch up with my final two interviewees - Claudia Bedin and Maria Swisher.  Four months on and there have been some big life changes for both of them. In fact, one of them brought a new human into the world. The podcasts very own Lockdown baby!! So kick back with a cuppa (or have a listen on a run if you're more sporty than me!) and enjoy! Love to hear any thoughts on the series so please rate, review and share! Be back... anon! Keep safe!

Isolation + Me: Esh Alladi
'Ello 'ello 'ello! In this bonus episode I speak to Actor AND Doctor, Esh Alladi.  You can imagine he's been somewhat busy during this period so I'm extra happy to have some of his time and of course, thoughts. Before Lockdown Esh never seemed to be off our stages and screens, appearing in Casualty, EastEnders and on The Globe theatre (to name a few) so turning his talents back to A+E has been quite a shift for him. Esh is open, honest and funny. The perfect combination for this podcast.  Enjoy! Follow him: @eshalladi

Isolation + Me: Samantha Meisner-Lemon
Why hello there! In this bonus episode we're going international again. Down Under in fact.  I'm speaking to mother and women of many careers, Samantha Meisner-Lemon. Sam lives in Sydney and fills me in on all things COVID-19 related in Australia - from the wider politics and healthcare, to her own personal experiences. She chats about her lowlights and highlights so far and.... wait for it.... even manages to dish the dirt on me from my youthful uni days in the process. As ever, Sam is articulate, well informed and a pleasure to speak with. Hope you enjoy as much as I did.  Until next time! Stay safe!
