Mar 3, 2015


The latest count of homeless individuals in San Francisco revealed that 6,436 people in the city are without a home. That is a number that has barely changed over the past few years, even though the city spends more than 165 million dollars a year on homeless services.

Journalist Gary Kamiya's latest article in San Francisco Magazine is called "The Outsiders," and focuses on the city's problem with perpetual homelessness. He sat down with Leah Rose, host of the podcast The Upshot, to talk about his investigation.
