Raising and amplifying the voices of women and men experiencing homelessness is a core part of our work. Podcasts are an ideal way to make this happen.
In 2013, after noticing the increased success of vendors who were very active in our workshops, Street Sense Media began offering a larger variety of activities. Podcasting is a popular workshop. Two podcasts series have been developed.
“Look at This a Street Sense Media Podcast,” is a six-episode podcast series that debuted June 1, 2021. It shares the stories, struggles, and triumphs of the men and women experiencing homelessness who sell the Street Sense newspaper in Washington, D.C.
“Sounds From the Street” is a multi-part series from 2015-2017 that elevates the voices of members and friends of the homeless community in our nation’s capital. Host Adam Kampe interviews Street Sense vendors and staff along with other changemakers in the community.
