Postcards from Home is a podcast series that provides a snapshot into everyday life during the Coronavirus pandemic. Captured as conversations over WhatsApp during stolen moments in a child’s bedroom or leaning against a kitchen counter, people paint rich portraits of the lives they’ve let go of, albeit temporarily, and the impact of self-isolation.
Job insecurity, sweating in a hazmat suit to clean out COVID-19 hotspots, creating a home bubble to protect children‘s emotional well-being, endless cooking, missing simple commutes to work, yearning for familiar embraces, wishing for wine with friends, and winding down a car window to inhale a deeply missed beach.
These are some of the images painted by people sending Postcards from Home.
These postcards are sent in the hope that Coronavirus is a singular event; a never to be repeated period of life. The podcast serves a time capsule, if you will, of how people coped when they were told to stay at home.
You can listen to Postcards on Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, Spotify, TuneIn, Stitcher etc; just search for Postcards from Home. Alternatively, they’re all here.
