#1822 Thrifty

You might have started thinking about your tax return but there’s still a pinch in a lot of our pockets. In this episode, we’re thinking about the different ways people get thrifty. We’re talking side hustles and sticky situations that come with being short on cash. 

‘The Art of the Side Hustle’ by Yvonne Lam

More and more people in workforce are turning to side hustles. But if you needed some extra cash, would you let strangers draw you naked?

‘Not to Attach Any Fixture: A Social History of Blu Tack and its Uses and Abuses Among Members of the Renting Classes’ By Dexter Fletcher

Since its invention in the early 1970s, Blu Tack has been a source of comfort and strength for the renting classes, who have used it to decorate, repair and otherwise make habitable their disintegrating, overpriced homes.

This story was recorded at a visual storytelling night hosted by Other Worlds Zine Fair and Read to Me in Sydney.
