Art (and Birdsong) in the Time of Corona

Apr 20, 10:22 PM
In this episode, we talk all things art and isolation with the wonderful Karen Ashton, founder of the Art Car Boot Fair. And Dr Hannah answers an important question about what parents should do if their child falls ill. Producer Russ also gets involved, telling us about the solace he's been taking from birdsong on his sunny spring walks.
