Hello!

Here we go again, talking about getting food from the bins ah!
The common name for this activity is dumpster diving, known as “skipping” in the United Kingdom.

😀

So how does it work? Why do people get dirty to get their food? Don’t they get sick? Are they desperate? What kind of people is doing it? Is it legal in their country? What kind of food or goods do you find?

Dear Listeners and readers;

Welcome to this new show!

On the mic: A.

You know from the last post that AM is still travelling in France, making interviews for you to have a look on the alternatice French side.

So tonight you will hear Tristana. Its been 5 years she’s working on a PHD dissertation which the subject is: “the wandering youth”. She started to work on the “risky behaviour” of hard drug addict youth.After 2 years she ended studying the youth who are living on the side of the conventional system, what the conventional system calls: non-integrated youth.

She discovered that these youth she was working with had the same kind of culture: they live in squats, they know the streets, they have their own symbole and they refuse a system which they don’t feel they can belong to.

Dears listeners,

Welcome to this new show!

On the Mic: A.

This end of this month is going to be really exciting as SSM is actually travelling in France :). So if you want to know about the French alternative attitude, stay tuned!

You will hear two guests from Bordeaux in the south west of France: Baptiste and Guillaume, who welcomed me this week in their squat. Its been a while now they are living on the side of the conventional system. For them its not just about to survive, there is a philosophy behind their lifestyle and they are proud about it.

Music with a special S&SM selecta.

All artists you will listen are linked right there, most of them are free to download.

See you On Air!

Special THANKS to the engineer Laura Tabourin who produced and translated this show from France. She did a really good job and without her, your ears would have been REALLY unhappy.

NB: I am sorry as the quality of the sound On Air tonight was fucked up because of some technical mistakes. The file down there is a good quality.

Dears listeners and readers,

Welcome to this new show!

On the Mic: A.

PROGRAMME:

Tonight we receive Atilla as the guest of the week. He is no going through traditional ways to get home and food and he is actually living on his new boat in London, which he is building in the same time. Why did he choose  not to have a conventional lifestyle? Hows the life cost on a boat?

Also, S&SM found out that some residents on the canal were quite angry against British Waterways before the olympics. From the Guardian:

-“Houseboat residents near the Olympic development site in east London are accusing British Waterways of an attempt at “social cleansing”. They say proposed changes to rules for living on the canals before the 2012 Games could force hundreds of people from their water-based homes. […]Under the new proposals, people using a continuous cruising licence would not be allowed to spend more than 61 days in a year in each of six designated neighbourhoods across 40 miles of canal network, and they would be forced to move to a different neighbourhood every 14 days.”

What does he think about it? How’s life with the British waterways since the olympics?

Listen the show if you want to know!
