In our second coronavirus special we see how freelance journalists are coping two weeks into UK lock down. The episode features parenting and career specialist Georgina Fuller, and, charity and Fantasy Football journalist Joe Lepper. They talk us through working at home whilst homeschooling, understanding the government's self-employment financial aid packages and why now is the time to get networking.
