Have you heard of the occasional Reach broadcaster Rich Brittain? he is the reason this show has been put on Mixcloud, I was accused of being "proud" of being on benefits because I aired this show, it is because of him that I decided to put it up on Mixcloud as he said and I quote "is it really appropriate to be broadcasting a show, which you have to pay for membership to broadcast, about being on benefits?", it was just going to be an aired once, one off thing, until that statement! The problem is there are now far too many people like him who will just judge instantly without knowing the slightest thing about the story of why somebody might be on benefits. I have another more in-depth programme where I interview people on benefits and explore how cuts may be affecting people who rely on them for reasons of unemployment, sickness and disability. I feel this show though would have been better containing a bit of history of the Noughties to play along with the personal story which I was quite light on details with anyway. But thanks for listening and for your support!

Very well done. Love the concept, although not the circumstances that inspired it.
