In this podcast we’re telling Alex’s story, about debt, grief and loss, and how life can spiral out of control.

This is the second in a series of podcasts that examines what life is like for families stuck in problem debt. The stories are taken from Life in the Debt Trap by Sorcha Mahony and Larissa Popple who both work as researchers for The Children’s Society.

The first episode, ‘Isolation and life in the debt trap’, can be found here.
