Episode notes

So many things to talk about on this week's show that you can listen to while on lockdown. There's the coronavirus, and the COVID-19 virus and maybe we should also talk about that nasty bug that's going around. No not Michael Gove, I mean the one that makes you cough. Anyway it's all covid up in here with economic historian Chris Colvin (@cliochris) guiding us in what lessons we should take from historical lurgies. Plus a look at the Windrush Lessons Learned review which has nothing to do with any sort of virus. Apart from the virus that is racism. Ahem.
