What, if anything, have we learned about human behaviour from COVID? That's what I'm exploring in this episode. Six months ago, my friend Mark Heywood invited me onto the first episode of Behind The Spine (BTS); a brand new podcast for writers that looks at genre & narrative. He wanted my thoughts about what impact COVID would have on human behaviour. You'll find that episode as a crosscast on this show.

Recently, Mark kindly invited me back for a "six months later" review to see whether my predictions had turned out to be correct. Fortunately, I didn't do too badly. So on this cross-cast episode, join me as Mark's guest, to explore 6 months of COVID from a behavioural perspective.
