The '99% Invisible' podcast series 'Acording to Need' looks into homelessness in California and asks the question 'what are we doing to get people into housing'. While focused on the US, many of the issues are faced here in New Zealand. Very thought provoking and insightful. If you only have time for one, try Episode 3 which describes how they compared the progressive model of moving homeless people into homes compared to giving them homes first. The results will surprise you.
