Five years ago Tom Dickins did something that many people would find stupid: on the back of advice from his friend Amanda Palmer, he decided to quit his job and, without savings, live off his art. He had no plan, no idea, but a lot of enthusiasm and resourcefulness.
This week you'll hear him reflect on that decision, what worked, what didn't, and whether he'll ever be able to buy a house.
And all the linky goodness for this episode:
