Ellen was struggling for money, working as a Subway "sandwich artist" (yes, that's a real thing.)

So she decided to find a new job and settled on one that allowed her to make over $30,000 for just a couple of hours of work each week. But the job also led to emotional and moral consequences she didn't fully anticipate.

Jack and Ellen won a Best Documentary: Honorable Mention award in the 2013 Third Coast / Richard H. Driehaus Foundation Competition. It was produced by Mooj Zadie, Brendan Baker and Nick van der Kolk for Love + Radio.

Listen to all nine winners of the 2013 TC/RHDF Competition, and check out the EXTRA section below for a few related links, and to hear Mooj accepting his award.
