In this candid conversation, Dennis Marble takes us on a fascinating, meandering trip that ends up with him becoming Director of the Bangor Area Homeless Shelter, a job he did not want to take but then stayed at for twenty years. From watching Sputnik overhead to seeing images of the Vietnam War to partying in Waterville with Janis Joplin, Dennis takes us back in time to share his perspective on growing up, the ways we treat each other, and finally how society interacts with its homeless members and how we can do better.
In this episode, Zeth and Betsy Lundy share their story of growing up in Maine, moving to Boston, Los Angeles, and then back to Boston again before coming home to raise a family and start Central Street Farmhouse.
