Big Issue Vendor

The Big Miss You Podcast

The Big Miss You Podcast was part of The Big Issue’s response to the coronavirus crisis.

For Big Issue vendors, whose only income is from selling the magazine, the Government lockdown due to COVID-19 was devastating – both financially and emotionally.

The Big Issue moved quickly to work out ways to continue selling the magazine. This allowed us to continue offering financial support to vendors – but we know that the human connection is just as important.

That’s where The Big Miss You Podcast came in.

Every week, as the magazine hit readers’ doormats, this podcast offered a space for vendors and readers to leave messages for each other. It’s a celebration of Big Issue vendors’ place at the heart of their communities.
