SDP 60: James Marriott and Stuart Grimshaw on freelancing in the time of Covid-19

In episode 60 of the Sheffield Digital Podcast we talk all things freelancing with software engineer, Stuart Grimshaw, plus audio specialist and organiser of the Sheffield Collective meet-up, James Marriott.

We’ve covered all sorts of Covid-19 related subjects over the last three months, so we thought we’d use this episode to focus on freelancers. 

Sheffield has plenty of freelance folk who have had plenty to think (and worry) about during the coronavirus crisis. James and Stuart share their stories, including how their freelance businesses have been affected, as well as some of the things they have learned. 

Don’t forget, if you’re a freelancer and want to get in touch with other people in your positions, apart from the excellent Sheffield Collective, we have a dedicated channel in the Sheffield Digital Slack community. 

Note: this episode was recorded on Friday 19 June 2020, so please do check to see if the information discussed is still up to date when you listen.
