A snapshot of a conversation about freelancers’ relationship with social media right now, powered by Tortoise Media, the slow news agency

Taken from a full-length, online discussion about the gig economy post-pandemic (you can watch the event in its entirety here), two members of the panel (based in Chicago and London) discuss their thoughts on the pros and cons of social media during the current climate. Hosted by Tortoise Media cofounder, James Harding, the former Director of BBC News and Editor of The Times, this excerpt explores the joy in switching off completely versus using Instagram as a tool to feel more physically connected.

Meet the members of the panel who share their thoughts on social media:

Paul Octavious: committee member at Soho House Chicago, photographer and videographer. He is self-taught and has worked with a range of global brands, including Nike and Cards Against Humanity. 

Nana Acheampong: Shoreditch House member, stylist and shopping editor, who regularly dresses the A-list for red-carpet appearances.
