About this episode

In Episode 2 of Change Makers, Michael is joined by Baroness Morrissey DBE, who gives her opinion on how the UK government has handled the COVID-19 pandemic, how the economy can get moving again after lockdown, and the long-term changes she expects to see in the way we all work. She also shares her experiences of living in lockdown with eight of her nine children and why she thinks the country will be a kinder place after this challenge.
