The Show has been focusing on one of the biggest issues facing the region: homelessness.

The series wraps up with some first-person perspectives.

Rob Weinbrenner has lived on and off the streets of Phoenix for years and has a lot to say about the experience. He also has some pretty intriguing ideas for how life could be better.

The Show caught up with Weinbrenner at a downtown Phoenix hotel where he's currently living.
