Episode 9: Life In lockdown with Ezra May

It’s an understatement to say that the last few weeks have been strange for every single one of us, no matter who we are or where we’re from.

The world as we knew it is no longer – we’re faced with a new kind of reality, a new kind of anxiety and without any certainty about the future beyond the COVID-19 pandemic.

And so, I’ve decided to press pause on an official Season 2 for now, in order to have important conversations about what’s currently happening, how we’re feeling about it and how we go about navigating this unprecedented time.

I’m happy to bring you the first episode of the At Home series, where I interview young creatives and my peers to listen to their insights and experiences in this ‘new normal’.

My first guest is none other than my younger sister Ezra May Aringay – who also happens to be my number one creative collaborator (and the producer of this very podcast!)

I wanted to sit down with Ezra May to get a better understanding of how she and her friends are coping amidst all of the ‘self-isolation’ and ‘social distancing’, and what it means for young people and the future ahead.

We discuss the various impacts of the pandemic on youth employment and lifestyle, and posit how artists and the arts sector might bounce back from such a challenging setback.

Don’t get us wrong however, this series isn’t here to encourage more wallowing about the state of the world right now – but rather, to help us see the good things despite of it!
