There is something curiously levelling about holding these conversations on Zoom. With each of us contained in our own little screen boxes, at home in living rooms, studies or bedrooms, it's harder to tell who is 'staff' and who is 'visitor'. We are all participants, balancing the discomfort of enforced technology with the comfort of being in our own personal space. It feels quite different.
