Anthony Flynn is on the couch this week for episode #056 of Paddy Holohan's No Shame podcast. Anthony is the CEO & Co-Founder of Inner City Helping Homeless (ICHH), a volunteer run non-profit organisation providing outreach support services.

As things stand currently, there's a lot of facts & figures surrounding the crisis that the government refuse to acknowledge or resolve.
