The “Outsiders” podcast, a yearlong look at Olympia’s unconventional attempt to address a rapidly growing homelessness crisis, capped off the conclusion of the series with an online event for listeners Thursday.

The series wrapped up Wednesday with its final episode, “The Streets Change You.”

Reporters from The Seattle Times’ Project Homeless team and KNKX Public Radio came together online to talk about how they made the series, navigated a global pandemic to finish reporting, share their favorite clips from the cutting-room floor and answer listener questions.
