While I was at a stop light, as is increasingly the case, there was a sad-looking person with a cardboard sign asking for money. I rolled down my window and as I gave him a buck, I asked him why he was wearing a Cal Berkeley hat. On the Feb. 9, 2014 edition of Work with Marty Nemko, he'll tell his story.
Work with Marty Nemko is heard every Sunday from 11 AM to noon on KALW, 91.7 FM in San Francisco and worldwide on kalw.org. The podcast is available for a week on the NPR site and in perpetuity on this page.
