Adela and Sara discuss the Homelessness listening list, which highlight some of the struggles and solutions communities are using to tackle the issue of homelessness. They also veer off topic to discuss other podcasts they’re enjoying lately, including Finding Fred, Scattered, and Last Day.
In this interview, we talk to Matt Levin, who co-hosts Gimme Shelter: The California Housing Crisis Podcast. PBC members worldwide listened to an episode of The Gimme Shelter podcast as part of our December listening list on Homelessness. The episode we listened to was titled “L.A., Houston mayors on housing and homelessness,” which was a collection of interviews with big city mayors on housing and homelessness.
In this interview, Jenna (chapter leader of the virtual chapter of PBC) chats with Sarah Gonzalez, host and reporter on the Planet Money podcast. The theme for the December PBC playlist was Homelessness and we listened to an episode of Planet Money titled “#913: Counting the Homeless,” which looked at ways communities are helping the homeless.
Homelessness and houselessness rates are reaching historic highs worldwide. Every city or region takes its own approach to solving homelessness, each attempt as unique as the local population. This month, we highlight some of the struggles and solutions communities are using to tackle these humanitarian crises.
