Once the country reopens, we'll all be unleashed on each other and realise that we've lost the ability to engage in small talk.

Lorcan Nyhan, Head of Training at the Communications Clinic, joined Mairead on the show to help prepare us for making conversation with anyone beyond our bubble of close friends and family.

Lorcan's first point was that whether it's finding out a bit more about who you're chatting to or just hearing to them talk about what they're interested in, listening is key.

And one we're definitely all guilty of - we've all heard enough about the pandemic so try not to dwell on it for too long! Be interested in the person you're talking to and ask them questions.
