PoC SHOUT OUT - We The Unhoused (18.06.2020)- Episode 26: Black Trans Lives Matter
Due to personal reasons, the release of the next PoC episode has been pushed back to Wednesday, June 24. We apologise for missing this week, but in its place, we would like to present to you the podcast, 'We The Unhoused'. In many ways, this podcast gets to the very core of what the platform is all about. Podcasting has the ability to empower people through accessible technology. That accessibility and freedom allows for creative control over a product that highlights voices and personal experiences that would otherwise go unnoticed. ABOUT PoC: SHOUT OUT In the course of researching, every now and then, Olly and Gareth come across certain podcasts that we wish more people could hear. Some are obscure and some are more mainstream. Obviously, we are great fans of podcasting and want to spread the word as much as possible. So, we thought - why not do exactly that? Why not promote the very podcasts we think everyone should listen to? And so, PoC: SHOUT OUT was born. ABOUT 'WE THE UNHOUSED' We The Unhoused is a podcast that lifts the voices and struggles of the unhoused in LA and beyond. Host Theo Henderson is currently unhoused and resides in Chinatown, Los Angeles. He tackles issues such as police brutality, harassment, policy, and the survival challenges of unhoused people. Through a series of interviews, we will discuss issues that are germane to unhoused people like the cost of living, gentrification, health struggles, harm reduction, and trauma-informed care. The revolution will be heard on this podcast. Tune in each week to be a part of it. ABOUT THIS EPISODE Amidst the uprising, Theo interviews Black Trans Organizer Chella Coleman, who experienced homelessness and currently sings in a band.
