How should we treat the unhoused population in our country? It’s January 2022, and Americans are divided. My guest today is Theo Henderson, who lives in Los Angeles, California and is a member of the unhoused community. Born in Chicago, Theo earned a scholarship to a local private college and received his undergraduate degree in education.

After being evicted from his apartment in 2013, he first moved into his car until he could no longer afford to keep it. He’s been unhoused ever since. As a result, he started “We the Unhoused”, a podcast that interviews, lifts the voices, and highlights the struggles of the unhoused community in Los Angeles and beyond. His work has been featured in media outlets like the BBC, Los Angeles Times, Vice, Curbed, and more.

America is deeply divided, largely driven by our declining distrust in government, institutions, and media outlets. This decline of American media isn’t hard to see. Turn on the tv, and you’ll often struggle to distinguish what qualifies as journalism vs entertainment. Provocative commentary has taken precedence over asking questions and collecting facts. News anchors posing as neutral moderators often make themselves the star of the show. They’re only willing to interview guests who reflect similar opinions and political identities. When they do, the result is often a surface level conversation lasting mere minutes. My name is Kevin MacPherson, and I feel that there must be a better way forward. Our media distrust can’t continue if we want to maintain the social fabric of our country. As a result, I started the Heal our Division Podcast. Each week, I host a long form conversation with someone directly involved and impacted by today's most pressing issues. Guests share their story without interruptions, provide commentary, and answer the questions that often go unaddressed. They’re also challenged to address opposing views and criticism, even if uncomfortable. The goal of the podcast is always the same. Speak with those directly involved in today’s issues, identify solutions, and demonstrate that we can heal our division as people despite our differences. Left, right, center, or independent - I invite you to join me with an open mind as we work to heal the division in our country, one interview at a time.
