Why this story?
We’ve asked a bunch of brilliant people – a poet, a chef, an actor, a refugee, a musician, a barrister, a comedian – to write a letter and read it out. We didn’t specify what it should be about, but asked them to tell us one thing they’re thinking about in lockdown. They’re letters; you can read them. But, better still, you can listen to each person read them to you.
Rather like Alistair Cooke’s great Letters from America, they’re each a big idea that starts with a small observation.
