For the remainder of lockdown, we’ll be bringing you the best in comment and analysis – all while providing practical advice on how to keep yourself sane, safe and healthy during the long days at home.

We’re coming to the end of Week Two of lockdown here in Britain – a stay-at-home order mandated by the government, in response to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic.

As these unprecedented measures – only being allowed to leave your home for exercise, essential shopping trips or medical assistance – become the new normal, there’s a tangible sense of anxiety in the air. Cast against the backdrop of sharply increasing deaths, all of which are relentlessly reported by the rolling news cycle, life as we know it is completely different to how it was just a few short weeks ago. At its worst, it can often seem like there’s no end in sight. 

Which is why we’ve launched The Lock-In, a new weekly YouTube show. From the kitchen of Contributing Editor Ben Smoke, we’ll be bringing you all the best comment and analysis during lockdown, all while providing practical advice on how to keep yourself sane, safe and healthy during the long days and nights at home. 

In Episode One, you can find us talking to community organiser Anna Vickerstaff. She helped launch one of the first mutual aid groups that have now spread across the country, resulting in thousands signing up to support those self-isolating and unable to leave their homes. We’ll also be looking at chain WhatsApp messages and how to spot what’s real – and what’s not.
