Episode 43: The Big Issue (ft. George Anderson)

This week, Suhail chats to George Anderson about his life.


The 2008 Financial Crisis left George homeless and wandering the streets of London. No longer having his job working within the NHS, he began selling the Big Issue magazine outside of the BBC building in the centre of the city. With a background in psychiatry, he talks to Suhail about how mental health issues can affect people who deal with rejection on a daily basis.


With the support of the Wellcome Trust, he's been gradually building up his own business - CRC Scotland & London - drawing on his previous experience working in biomedical research. It hopes to help researchers publish their work when English isn't their first language.
