About Us

The Shelter From The Storm podcast documents the complex, varied, compelling and often surprising stories of those who pass through the doors of their Islington-based homeless shelter.​ ​Each story – told in the words of the ​shelter ​guests themselves​ and set to original music – is about more than just the experience of homelessness. It’s about the often tragic but rarely uncommon circumstances that lead to it.Shelter from the Storm is an emergency night shelter, completely free to guests, providing bed, dinner and breakfast for 44 homeless people every night of the year. We have guests who are fleeing torture, forced marriage, honour crime, trafficking for work or sex and plenty who have just fallen through the cracks of our society. In this series we present stories from these people, in their own words.Production: Dan Keefe & Sheila Scott for Black Sheep StudiosRecording & Mix: Guilt Free StudiosMusic: Daniel LovegroveGraphics: Chris EgglestoneThanks to our amazing contributors who have been courageous enough to share their stories.

Episode 4: Ben - Bedtime for Bono

In the UK and Ireland, alcohol culture is wound deeply into our society. From the small Irish provincial town he was born in to London via Glasgow, Ben found this to be true at every turn. Find out what happens when this collides with an addictive personality, self destructive tendencies and traumas of both childhood and adulthood. Through a series of ever-more dangerous professions including a speedball-and-Guinness powered stint as a roadie, Ben's story is one of extremes and squandered talents: short stories written and then burned for heat in squats; careers discarded in the unremitting search for something else. A poet and a natural storyteller, Ben takes us through his unravelling into homelessness, a 3-day cold turkey and the novel he's writing about his experiences, both light and dark: 'Bedtime for Bono'. "The plan was, there was no plan".

Episode 3: Yasmin - Street Life

A vivacious outsider from the beginning both at home and in school, Yasmin navigated a childhood of sexual abuse, repression and dyslexia as a Somalian girl in 1970s Scunthorpe. She describes how she has at times been a functioning member of society, and at others slipped through the cracks into a world of alcoholism, prostitution and homelessness. We also get another perspective on the brutal practice of FGM.
