So, what is a guy to do when he is all alone in the city with too much energy and a need to talk? Thats right…have a couple of strong drinks, buy a pack of cigarettes, and walk around the big city handing out smokes and talking to the homeless.
Ok, so this is the first time I had done this, but I did it in order to prove a point. It is my intention to start a podcast called the “Street Cast” where I go around talking to people on the street (homeless folks mostly) and finding out a bit about them, there background and what lead up to them being there. Hopefully, if im lucky, I will get to hear some great original street music too.
Anyway, to get back to the point, I was out on the street this fine night and met a gentleman by the name of Billy. He was 53 and hanging out right outside my place. He told me some great stories about city life, why he was in town and a little about himself. He was quite polite to all the people that walked by, too. He only asks for change from single men (and sometimes women)…never from couples or families. Anyway, a couple of smokes and I was on my way. Hopefully if I can get my podcast up and running I will share the entire story..and more.
