S2E16 - Homeless

This week we are so pleased to sit down with Jamie Vickery to discuss how disasters affect people experiencing homelessness, and some of the deeper issues at play that are too often overlooked. We cover emergency response, policy, trust and narratives, and consider how we might challenge a culture that normalizes homelessness as a cautionary tale.
