Like most artists in Berlin, DJ Brendan Gregoriy, 38, is watching his income shrink as the coronavirus pandemic shuts down the economy. Even so, he considers himself one of the lucky ones and wrote about it on Facebook. Instead of lamenting his lost gigs, the Irish Berliner writes about others who are also dependent on a gig economy that has all but collapsed.

“I can’t say it’s … the easiest thing being in close captivity even with your loved ones for this long…but we’ll get through it. It’ll be fine,” says Gregoriy

Listen to find out why he feels lucky.
