While the pandemic meant a major touring hiatus for a lot of musical artists, writer, rapper, and singer Dessa kept creating content.

She hosts a new BBC podcast called Deeply Human and has a radio drama in the works.

In January, she announced a single series called "Ides," where she releases a new song on the 15th of every month. There's even one called "Terry Gross."

We talk with Dessa about keeping busy during the last year.
