Hear from the neighbors you’ve noticed but likely know little about. Learn about life in a Tent City, what a mother thinks about when living in a car with her two children, and why someone might move to Seattle without having a home to move into.
This episode gives you an inside look into the lives of some of Seattle’s residents who struggle with homeless: Ty Sanders (4:49) who lives on the streets, Stu Tanquist (11:18) who I met in Tent City 7, and Charlotte Wheelock (22:25) who I met in Mary’s Place family shelter. You will also hear from Janie Hendrix (2:40), CEO of Experience Hendrix and sister of the late, great musician Jimi Hendrix; and from Parker Ferguson (3:01), founding partner at Flinn Ferguson commercial real estate services. The episode features an in-depth interview with the executive director of Mary’s Place, Marty Hartman (35:42), who provides expert opinion on how to address the challenges of the rising homeless population.
With an appearance by Mike Gibbons of Tent City 7.
Powerful conversation with Charlotte. Sure drives home that many people are not far away from a catastrophic financial event, really through no fault of their own.
