Worth the listen

Good podcast, a little repetitive with the facts especially with such short episodes. Ps: Edmonton isn’t a slumtown - but this is definitely an important issue and I’m glad it’s getting more attention.

ignorance

blarg. too many NIMBYs and not enough knowledge about poverty, trauma, drug use, addiction. Didn’t even bother to talk to the folks they’re talking about. For a real podcast about these issues check out Crackdown.
