With the Coronavirus Pandemic sweeping the world right now, one of the best things we can all do is to participate in social distancing. As I’m sure most of you have heard by now, it is advised that we all stay indoors as much as we can over the next two weeks, at least, to reduce the chances of the virus spreading even further.

For the next two weeks, we will be putting together lists of some of our favourite things to read, watch and do while we’re all sitting at home trying to combat the spread of COVID-19. To start, HOLRs Creative Director Joshua Davies has compiled a list of his 5 favourite Youtube channels.
