Yes I did, also thought it was well reported it felt like I was actually in Athens, could have listened to it more and was nice to here the opinions of the local people from all walks of life, a little sad too in a way but as you say Lavinia explained it brilliantly.

Modern Greece has lived through the Asia Minor disaster of 1922, Axis occupation in 1940s, civil war and military dictatorship. But in those critical times there was at least an enemy, a cause and the belief that popular action could bring about significant change.
But the current national crisis feel different. Different every day, different every week, different every month. As the most recent 48 hour national strike gripped the nation, the writer Maria Margaronis navigated her way through her beloved country to hear - above the din of protest and the hiss of the tear gas - those voices trying to make sense of this spiralling crisis in Athens and in the mountains and villages beyond
Everyone who can should set aside 38 minutes to listen to the programme to understand how hard it really is for an awful lot of people in Greece now
