the incarceration and parole system needs to be totally desimated and overhauled. Cheers to Dave's Bakery and to Phil & Co for highlighting the good deed and good work. a podcast like this, assuming it stays true to only highlighting bonafied efforts by companies to do-good, and it's not just another do-good program because it's the vogue thing to do, will be very valuable to the philanthropic community and the world at large. congrats to Phil (whomever he is) & Co. for the launch.

Eye Opening

Thoroughly enjoyed listening to the first episode, which offered an informative and engaging conversation about student homelessness and the organizational strategies, programs, and policies that can help overcome this problem. Great podcast for anyone who cares about social justice issues and wants to learn more about what is being done to address them. Looking forward to the next one!
