Life's Lottery

Birth is a throw of the dice. The consequences can last a lifetime. A child born into poverty today will struggle to break out in adulthood - no matter how hard they work. But how do we break the cycle of disadvantage?

Life's Lottery

The series

Cycles of disadvantage are numerous, complex and greater than the sum of their parts. This podcast is about big ideas and novel approaches to breaking those cycles.

Is social mobility still possible? How can massive, global systems be changed? How can we prevent people from coming into contact with the criminal justice system? In conversation with public policy experts, thought-leaders, and people whose lives have been touched by disadvantage, Life’s Lottery delves into the latest research and new programs that are achieving meaningful and lasting change.

Life’s Lottery is a two-season podcast made by Impact Studios, in partnership with the Paul Ramsay Foundation.
