We've arrived at episode 5 of #MrBsJusticeSeason. Join us as we talk to journalist Maeve McClenaghan about her experience of a year investigating the homelessness crisis in the UK, and the book which emerged from this journey.

'No Fixed Abode' is a revealing and moving exploration of how very far the tragedy of homelessness has been allowed to develop, but also about the solutions which already exist. It began with one question, which Maeve asked after coming across a few news stories in 2018: how many people die in the UK while homeless? As it turned out, this piece of statistic just didn't exist.

Hosted by Jessica Gaitan Johannesson. Music by The Bookshop Band.
