Episode 11: We beg to differ on panhandling: In this episode we meet some of the KC area residents who brave the winter cold, sweltering heat and dangerous road conditions to beg for your generosity. How do you react when a panhandler asks for money? How do you feel when you give or don’t give? You’ll hear from the panhandlers and a local psychologist [Jacob Marszalek, Ph.D.] who discusses the motivations on both sides of the “God Bless” sign.
KCTV5’s Dave Pinter interviewed local psychologist Jacob Marszalek, Ph.D. for a podcast about the psychological theories explaining the motivations behind various responses to panhandling.
