Welcome to The Anon Podcast, produced by Big Issue North. Anon puts the spotlight on real people in the North, whose stories, if told at all, are rarely told well by the mainstream media. From asylum seekers to disabled people or people living on the streets, our podcast gives a voice and an identity to those who had previously been anonymous.


Episode One: Ramona’s story

Ramona Constantin arrived in the UK from Romania in 2007. Since then, she has experienced life as a Big Issue North seller, seen the prejudice and hate that comes with being an immigrant, raised a family, and delivered projects within Roma communities in Manchester to aid integration. We caught up with Ramona in the summer of 2017 to talk about her journey, her progress, and the bombshell that came with the Brexit vote.
