How to Save Water
California is in a drought -- again. LAist’s new show How to LA explores what more Angelenos can do to preserve water. It won't be easy, but we meet up with one long-time resident who shows us how it's possible. Follow How to LA; the show aims to drop a little knowledge about ALL the things that affect the people of Los Angeles, whether that’s something that makes our city great (tacos!) or something that we need to work on, like the alarming number of traffic collisions. We serve the curious Angeleno who wants to better connect with our city, discover the new, navigate the confusing and even drive some change along the way. Support for this podcast is made possible by Gordon and Dona Crawford, who believe that quality journalism makes Los Angeles a better place to live. This program is made possible in part by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, a private corporation funded by the American people.

Youth Homelessness and Mental Health in Los Angeles
About 5,000 young people are currently experiencing it in Los Angeles County. The reasons vary from abuse and conflict in the home... to housing and economic insecurity experienced by entire families. Now, after more than a year of a pandemic, advocates worry those numbers could climb. Already, many of these youth carry trauma from their childhoods into their homeless experience, and that instability of being on the street and unhoused only compounds the fear, stress and anxiety that many feel.  What happens when you move around a lot and can't form stable relationships? Lack a permanent place to stay, or any kind of consistency? How can young people push through that with the right treatment, and what support is needed from the city to the county to the state to help them get there?  These are the questions we discussed during an event last Thursday, examining the intersection of youth homelessness and mental health. It was produced in conjunction with Call to Mind, American Public Media's initiative to foster new conversations about mental health. We bring you an edited version of that panel discussion here.  Take Two is joined by three young women who had experienced homelessness in their teens and three clinicians working with homeless youth in Los Angeles.   Guests: Angela M. Sanchez, Alumna and Board Member of School on Wheels, Inc. Jennifer Myers, Advisory Board Member for the Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority Sarah Fay, Peer Navigator for Safe Place for Youth Daniel Ballin, Clinical Director at Covenant House California Erin Casey, Director of Programs at My Friend's Place Los Angeles Dr. Diane Tanaka, Medical Director of the Homeless Adolescent and Young Adult Wellness Center Children's Hospital in Los Angeles
