Today’s guest on the show is Diego. In this episode Diego and I talk about homelessness, evil books, opioids, crack, heroin, coffee, and the misconceptions of being homeless.
The other day I was walking to Washington Square Park looking to meet some content creators but they weren’t there. There was schedule mix up because Instagram’s algorithm gave me an old post and I thought the meet up was that day, I was wrong.
On my walk back home I ended on Houston Street. As I was walking, I walked past Diego sitting on the corner. He had a sign that read he was homeless as well as a change cup by his feet.
As I turned the corner a little voice popped into my head and told me to invite Diego on the podcast. After a bit of persuasion, he was down for the recording and even offered me a piece of cardboard to sit on.
I sat down
About halfway through the conversation he started smoking Spice or K2 or Synthetic Weed. He offered me some by I was good on that experience. No judgement, just not about that life.
