Podcast #81: Inside Ending Homelessness with Randall Cohn


The Harbor Lights shelter in downtown Minneapolis

The podcast this week is a conversation with Randall Cohn, a law student and long-time worker and wonk working on homelessness policy in Minneapolis. We sat down the other day in the back room of Club Jaeger, right in the North Loop near many of the homeless shelters of downtown Minneapolis. We chatted all bout Randall’s experience working in and with shelters around the city, and bout the recent attempts to “end homelessness” in Minneapolis. It’s a fascinating topic, and I think you’ll enjoy the conversation.
