In this week's edition of the Bonus CoronaPod, we are joined by journalist Richard Chambers for a fascinating perspective on the pandemic from someone working daily on the frontline. Richard gives a refreshingly succinct account of the sense of exhaustion that he is witnessing from our nation's leaders and he responds to Jarlath's question concerning spin and distraction tactics from the powers that be during these difficult times. From what gives him optimism to the risks he faces doing his vital job, the lack of craic at the moment, the importance of having a support network at the moment and much more, this is a much-needed conversation with a man at the centre of Irish journalism during one of the most challenging periods in history.
