My goal is that my new normal should be better than my old before Covid. This is why I started the website for myself. Always had the hope that I could find a few like-minded people to share interests with but I never found the time to truly delve into it before.
I am home like the rest of the world but that doesn’t mean that I should feel less connected with the rest of the world. Monocle Radio plays a big part in ensuring that I enjoy my mix of global news, culture and music in a way that informs and educates. I have become wary of the provoke mode repeated over and over with every news cycle. It’s like a clothes washer spinning and stopping, a little chime rings to say it’s done but then after a few minutes, it starts spinning again because we haven’t shut it off properly. Then oddly enough no matter what side of any debate I am on, I feel the toxicity seeping into my skin.
Monocle Radio and BBC News is my antidote.
For Monocle Radio Download the app. This is not your regular radio station.
I still get BBC News on cable. Will try to update this once I explore if we can get BBC apps in the United States.
