    ST MUNGO'S - ENDING HOMELESSNESS, REBUILDING LIVES
    Rough sleeping can become a relentless cycle that’s incredibly difficult to escape from. St Mungo’s is one of the only organisations whose frontline workers are out, every night, to bring people in from the streets.
    THE CONNECTION
    The Connection at St Martin’s works with people sleeping rough to move away from, and stay off, the streets of London. We with them as they recover from life on the streets and move towards a meaningful, fulfilling future away from homelessness and into shelter.
    SHELTER
    For someone at risk of homelessness, our support and advice can be the difference between finding emergency accommodation or spending a night in their car.
    Shelter's campaigning work can mean the difference between being powerless or seeing legislative changes to fight unfair evictions, rogue landlords and dangerous housing.

Always great. Loved the Ian McKewan interview.
Big love Adam from Fremantle, WA

Dog walk downunder

Adam’s podcast accompanies my own morning walk here in Sydney. It’s just the right length to synch with my circuit. As an expat from UK, his rambling chat kind of reconnects me with the homeland. I can picture Norfolk vividly as my dad has lived there for many years and I used to walk in the country often (near Cromer) And the chats themselves are nearly always engaging and interesting. As others have said, when he takes a break there aren’t any other podcasts that quite hit the same spot.

Yola!

Long time listener Adam… you show is 👌🏾
Mate, your chat with Yola - so good! She is amazing! Thank you for bringing her into my life
