Great podcast for social workers
I love this podcast. I currently work with the homeless population and I am furthering my education right now. I love the focus of this podcast and the conversation is enlightening and helpful, especially for those of us in the field working with clients.
Though I am not a social worker the topics and discussions are key to understanding the dynamics of human services field and the intersections of individual and social experiences! Keep bringing on the heat y’all!!!!!
I am currently in my internship placement and graduating with a social work BSW in May. This podcast has gave me great insight into social work as a professional, as well as social issues that impact populations I will service. Every episode is unique and refreshing, as well as SO easy to listen to. It is in my morning routine to listen to it while on the way to work now. I am LOVING it!
