The Reason

Richard Chapman, Shine Deputy Chair, comments:

‘What struck me firstly about this podcast, recorded deep in April’s lockdown, is the quick-thinking and ingenuity of the team to pull together such a thoughtful programme at that extraordinary moment in time.

‘The disembodied voices of Zoom have become all too familiar to us in the time since, but at that point it was all new, and this podcast manages to capture the disconnectedness and sense of confusion – yet stoicism – of the team.

‘In particular the students of 2020 have lost so much, notably a chance to say goodbye to their friends, and this podcast has a bittersweet resonance as a result’.
