Street View Podcast is a joint effort between the Dallas Public Library and Rashad Dickerson. This podcast is part of the Dallas Public Library’s ongoing Homeless Engagement Initiative aimed at increasing community awareness of issues related to homelessness, providing opportunities for open dialogue between housed and homeless communities, and promoting the public library as a place of social inclusion and diversity.
Street View Podcast began recording at the J. Erik Jonsson Central Library in downtown Dallas in January 2014. Rashad Dickerson serves as the show’s main host, interviewing both those serving the homeless and those experiencing homelessness. As a homeless individual, Rashad offers a unique voice for the show and for the homeless community.
Podcast guests include CEO’s and Executive Directors of some of Dallas’s largest homeless service providers, including Larry James, Rev. Bruce Buchanan, and Mike Faenza.
