Just as good as 99% invisible

I’ve pretty thoroughly retreated from my pre-pandemic diet of public interest stories, New Yorker articles, news podcasts. Because they’re all reported from basements? Because they just make me feel more stuck at home? I’m not totally sure why or why this series feels different. But it does....Read full review »

Most often, empathy comes from being able to put yourself in someone’s shoes. The incredible reporting by Katie Mingle in this series puts a humanizing face to the houselessness that I’ve seen daily in the multiple cities I’ve lived in. It has galvanized me to do something more proactive in my...Read full review »

Essential listening for anyone who cares about homelessness in America. Katie Mingle explains, through stories about the homeless and the people trying to help them, how the system works – or doesn’t-for so many. Their stories are often heart rending, yet by the end there is reason to be hopeful.

Great insight into ‘the system’. Deep insightful understanding of how it works is the first step towards improving it. Politicians need to hear this!

This audio series is essential for current contexts on the issue of homelessness and the inefficient system that it supposed to be the solution. We ALL need to be part of the solution, or at least understand how it could work better. The roadblocks that prevent those underserved from finding...Read full review »

Wow! Excellent short-series podcast reporting on homelessness in Oakland, CA, which easily translates to all cities’ homeless population. We are all one paycheck, hospital bill, medical need ... away from being homeless.

I learned so much listening to this series! Homelessness is, in some ways, a more complex problem than I had understood — but this show makes it clear that, as a society, we are choosing to let people live in unsafe situations, and we can and must do better. This is essential listening for all of...Read full review »

Simply put - you need to listen to this story. If this is a story you can relate to, listen. If this is foreign to you - listen to the stories of others. No matter what this is worth your time.

One of my favorite mini-series to date. It’s a well-written and produced deep dive into a complicated topic, exploring multiple point of views with empathy and grace. More importantly, it focuses on an extremely topical concern and brings to light something that we all need to care more about

I always heard about how bad homelessness has become in California. The media covers it all of the time, but none of them have ever stopped and said why. Why is it so bad? What is being done about it? Both questions rarely ever asked or answered. According to Need does both. Like it’s parent...Read full review »

This series does an amazing job interweaving stories of people who are homeless in the Bay Area with reporting on the structural causes of homelessness and the failures of the systems designed to provide housing for people on the edge. It’s a must listen.
GW81 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/17/21
This show has a ton of heart. Producer Katie Mingle brings a sensitive ear to the topic of homelessness, humanizing the families that live in tents and trailers throughout the Bay Area as she tries to navigate the beurocracy that's designed to help them. Surprisingly tender for such a heavy...Read full review »

Extremely thoughtful and humane work on a topic that’s usually stigmatized and surrounded by misinformation. Cannot recommend enough!

This is my favorite podcast, and I listen to a lot! Mingle is an incredible reporter and storyteller who brings us right into the center of tough questions and impossible situations - elegantly straddling the divide between richly told personal experiences and their relations to institutional...Read full review »

Essential listening for everyone interested in the problems and solutions of homelessness, especially if you live in the Bay Area. Well researched with compelling stories.

Everyone in the world should listen to this. Excellent reporting about an often overlooked problem and our failures at addressing it.
lf22222 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/17/21
This is an amazing podcast with incredible reporting on a subject rife with misunderstanding. Hearing what the struggle of homelessness is like from those so familiar with it really moved me and broadened my understanding of the issues. Thank you Katie and the 99pi team for making this important...Read full review »

Experiencing homelessness is very dehumanizing and Katie hasn’t fallen into that trap at all. Great series
HannahDoubleU via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/17/21
A truly incredible series. I had no idea how homeless service agencies work, and the series brings to life the stories of people doing the real work. The show is heartbreaking, but by far the clearest, sharpest, and most compassionate introduction to the issue I could imagine.
DinoXpert via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/17/21
This should be essential listening for anyone concerned about the increase of people who live without shelter in our cities. It dispels so many of the recurring dehumanizing myths around homelessness that come up on all Nextdoor discussions.
