Listen Local is Mission Local’s biweekly radio program. We broadcast live online at every other Thursday morning from 9:30 to 10:00.

While dozens of outlets have been covering homelessness extensively, you’re unlikely to find a take on the issue quite like what Stories Behind the Fog is doing. The project combines artistic photos with a narrative from the subject’s point of view to let the people being profiled tell their own stories.

Diya Guha and Nermin Habib talk with Mission Local to talk about how this project developed, their experiences working with the homeless community, and allowing these stories from the streets stay true to the teller.

Listen to this program below, or check out older shows on our BFF archives.
