As the UK’s lockdown continues, sheer boredom is forcing more and more people to take up new hobbies simply to pass the time.

And it seems the rest of the world feels the same because Seth MacFarlane is definitely bored in self-isolation - he’s just released a podcast hosted by Family Guy’s Stewie and Brian.

The show’s creator shared the podcast on his Instagram, along with a sketch of the characters recording the COVID-19 podcasts (masks and all).

In the podcast, the pair share what they’ve been up to in isolation, which seems to include playing a lot of Trivial Pursuit and Sorry.

They also shared some advice and life hacks on how to keep ourselves entertained while we’re stuck indoors, including some not-so-handy tips on what to do when you run out of toilet roll.

Before adding a more heartfelt message of encouragement: “Our goal is to help remind people that we can get through this with cooperation and togetherness.”

And okay, Brian and Stewie may not have the most practical advice but any distraction is welcome right now, even if it’s a five-minute long podcast from a fictional talking dog and toddler.

On a more serious note, MacFarlane did put in a mention to go to the World Health Organisation’s website if you are worried about the virus and feel like you need some guidance.
