Location: Remotely
Date: Wednesday 7th April
Role: Rapper, Podcaster and Author

With the emergence and rapid spread of COVID-19 in early 2020, governments worldwide opted to lockdown in an unprecedented move. After struggling to contain the spread of COVID and the deadliness and contagiousness relatively unknown, they argued that it was a temporary measure and a necessary step to take as they learned more about the virus.

Now, one year on from the initial lockdowns and with vaccination programs well underway, many countries are on their way out of lockdown, but did the lockdowns work? And, was it a necessary reaction to the virus?

In this interview, I talk to rapper, podcaster and author Zuby. We discuss the government’s response to COVID, the economic and social impact of lockdowns, libertarianism, and the state’s role.
