More men are choosing to leave the traditional workforce and be caregivers at home. We look at what’s driving the trend and hear about your family experiences. We also talk with an author about the ways a lack of affordable housing contribute to homelessness.

Featured in this Show

  • Why more men are leaving the workforce to care for children and families

    The percentage of men in the workforce has been decreasing while a higher percentage of men are becoming stay-at-home dads to care for their children and family. We talk to a sociologist who has researched these trends and the impact they have on households.

  • How the housing market contributes to homelessness

    The issue of homelessness has a lot of regional variation across the United States. We talk to the author of a new book that argues, the common thread for much of it is the availability of housing in any given area.
