#1328 Strangers on the Street


‘A stranger is just someone you haven’t met yet.’


Everyday we pass by people we don’t know.

How does our behaviour change when we don’t know someone and we have no personal responsibility for their safety or wellbeing?  Pip Rasmussen explores the Bystander Effect and how it plays out with strangers on the street.

The homeless are often referred to as ‘the invisible people’ of our communities.  They are the strangers we walk past everyday.  But, what is it like living on the streets?   This episode we hear a personal account about  being homeless.
