Mark Horvath, a former homeless person in Hollywood, now runs the blog InvisiblePeople.tv and posts interviews with current homeless people. Each week brings a new opportunity to hear an engaging and startling story about poverty in America.

This week, Horvath reveals that he brings clean pairs of socks with him on the street, and that those he talks to are always so pleased to be presented with clean socks, usually more than money or food!

In the latest video, a man named Paul discusses how New York's homeless frequently get harassed by police, and groups of homeless establish lookouts so that others can sleep on park benches.
