On this week's episode of We're Still Here, EG's podcast to get you through these strange times, tech editor and head of Special Projects Emily Wright is joined by EG's deputy editor Tim Burke and deputy legal and professional editor Jess Harold.

With topics for discussion ranging on the mental health implications of working through a lockdown  - or, indeed, questioning the mental health implications of forcing everyone back to the office five day's a week post pandemic - to new support methods for landlords, this episode covers a lot of ground.

Perfect for anyone after a weekly update on EG's top stories and analysis plus a little human interaction to finish off the week.

We talk about how the industry is being tested but how doing good as well as doing good business should be top of the agenda throughout and beyond these tough times.

Happy Friday from the team here at EG, we'll be back next week.
