In this episode we tell Amara’s story, about her dreams, and how fragile these are when your childhood is overshadowed by debt.

Amara’s story is followed by a discussion between the authors of the book, Sorcha Mahony and Larissa Pople, along with Sam Royston, all from The Children’s Society, and Jess Miles, from Bristol University Press.

This is the third, and final, part of a mini-series of podcasts based on the book, Life in the Debt Trap: Stories of Children and Families Struggling with Debt.  The other podcasts in the series are Loss, grief and life in the debt trap and Isolation and life in the debt trap.
