Or already now in the BR radio play podcast:


Being broke, going bankrupt, living heavily in debt, filing for personal insolvency – these are threats we’d rather not think about in detail and certainly don’t want to experience ourselves. But what if it does happen?

In “am broke without me”, the shaken self-esteem of those to whom it does happen, the despair of those who can no longer keep up, and the hope that everything will one day be the way it was.
