I interviewed Steven Cutler, a Senior Nurse on the intensive care unit at St Thomas’ about his experiences working on the frontline and the importance of facilities like the staff wellbeing zones to help staff decompress from some of the most challenging shifts of their careers.
Although I wrote this piece a year before many of us experienced months of isolation due to the Covid-19 pandemic – finding community and connections across different backgrounds and generations is, and always will be important to combat loneliness.
I looked at how different genres explore rage from the gothic melodrama of ‘hagsploitation’ films of the 60s and 70s, to the schlocky thrillers of the 80s and 90s to more recent, feminist and nuanced representation in films like Widows, The Wife and the Babadook.
At the start of the first UK lockdown in 2020, I sat in my small flat thinking about what was happening in nature, while humans were stuck inside. I spoke to organisations like Trees for Cities, National Park City, and Rewild My Street about conservation, climate change and the small changes we can make to make London greener, cleaner, and more healthy.
As part of my Hidden London travel series for London Cheapo, I spent an afternoon around my old stomping ground of Bloomsbury. It was a pleasure to stroll around literary landmarks, historic spots and photograph lesser known artefacts of London’s history.
