Blowing Bubbles – Positively Podcasting Covid

Posted on June 5, 2020

1


At the start of the Covid Lockdown we were asked to a daily radio show/podcast: Blowing Bubbles.  It is broadcast on Otago Access Radio (3pm NZ) and podcast from there and sustainablelens.org. Positive conversations with people in their bubbles around the world. https://www.facebook.com/BubblesBySustainableLens/

We’re going for a conversation a bit like Sustainable Lens but with more currency around the current situation.  And deliberately positive.  How are people living their bubble lives, working from home, keeping kids entertained, staying connected and  getting exercise?  And how are these things presenting us with opportunities to find new ways of living?

The show is by the Sustainable Lens team – Samuel Mann in Sawyers Bay Dunedin and Mawera Karetai in Whakatane.  Shane Gallagher drops in when work schedules let him.  We have daily contributions from Tahu Mackenzie and Liesel Mitchell (and Andy Thompson for the first few weeks).
