Binged season 2

Incredible podcast that highlights a tragic case, a flawed social system, and shines a light on the heartbreaking stories behind many homeless people.

Will definitely listen to season 1 next, and hope for future seasons. A truly dynamic team!

How good is this podcast.

I only just found this podcast. I binged season 2 and now halfway through season 1. Very impressive work by presenters, producers and all involved.
Keep up this standard, very worth the listen.
