Editor’s Note

I remember as a kid watching a movie about a big passenger liner ship that flips over upside down and then slowly begins sinking. Around the same time we watched a film about a massive residential building that catches fire and the people who try to escape. These were classic disaster movies.

We seem drawn to disaster. It is as if we don’t want to be caught in a disaster ourselves but can’t look away when we see one.

My Instagram feed loves to show me clips of people (both sober and not) falling off things or into things (however they fall, they always seem to be hurting themselves) so, it seems the algorithm knows that my fascination with disaster seems to be going strong.

Sometimes, if you have a lot of debt and are struggling to make ends meet, it can feel like you are starring in a sick disaster movie of your own. One where the main character wakes up in a cold sweat at night worried about paying off their debt.
