Jobs of the future
The pandemic has transformed our working lives. Where we work, how we work and what jobs are available are some of the biggest post-Covid issues so in a special edition we explore them:

- What will the jobs market look in the months and years to come?
- What will be the jobs we haven’t conceived yet?
- How can we stop robots replacing us?
- Is it finally time for Universal Basic Income?
- Will we ever be able to retire?

We look at how Big Issue are adapting to an increasingly cashless society with help from Zettle by Paypal. Look out for a video starring Dave Martin coming soon…

James O’Brien
In a Letter To My Younger Self, the outspoken radio host talks says the impact of the abuse he suffered at school became clear when he opened up to therapy

We have Olivia Williams talking about her superhero series and starring in The Father, Sam Delaney harks the return of The OC and Anne Frankenstein celebrates Sons of Kemet’s celebration of Black Britishness.

Plus Daniel McKenzie sings the praises of Inverness, and we pay tribute to London vendor Barry Harding who died earlier this month.

Plus much more…

The Big Issue

The Big Issue’s own-brand products support the creation of a range of work-based opportunities for disadvantaged people.
The Big Issue has spent over 27 years at the helm of self-help revolution. It all began with the launch of The Big Issue magazine in 1991, which was created to offer homeless and disadvantaged people the opportunity to earn a legitimate income by selling a magazine on the streets. Since then over 200 million copies magazine have been sold by over 100,000 people. Vendors buy the magazine upfront for £1.50 and sell it on to the public for £3.00, and in doing so each runs their own micro-enterprise. In 2005 Big Issue Invest was launched, with the aim of extending The Big Issue’s mission by financing the growth of social enterprises and charities across the UK. To date the organisation has directly invested in over 350 such organisations, and manages or advises on more than £170 million of social funds.
