We are social creatures, so it’s no surprise that the MCO fatigue has begun to set in, and for some, working from home can be an isolating experience.

As for us, we love playing SYOKcasts in the background as we work because the friendly banter between hosts and/ or guests remind us of our chats with colleagues in the office. 

Here are some SYOKcasts that you can catch up on, which may brighten your days at home:
