Living on a prayer in the Eurozone

Listen in pop-out player

Unemployment in the Eurozone has reached new records, with young people being the worst affected. In countries such as Greece and Spain, youth unemployment now exceeds 50%. We hear from graduates in Italy about the problems they face in finding a job, and we examine the psychological effects of being out of work. We also speak to American singer-songwriter and occasional politcal activist Amanda Palmer, who tells us about her own experiences trying to find work - and about the remarkably successful crowdsourcing experiment that funded her latest album.
