The Homeless Episode

Ask and ye shall receive! Time to talk homelessness with someone who knows something about it: Brad Robinson is the Director of Corporate Relations and Innovation for the Skid Row Housing Trust (skidrow.org), a nonprofit organization in Los Angeles that builds housing for the homeless population.

This is a long and in-depth conversation about homelessness, its causes, and the various ways the problem can be addressed. Brad describes the mission and methods of the Trust, provides theories about why some homeless people engage in antisocial behavior, and why homelessness and its solutions are not liberal or conservative issues.

Also: Isaac loves pooping in public, one of our listeners is a professor???, and Brad answers listener questions.
