By KCBS All News 106.9FM and 740AM

This edition of the Deep Dive Bay Area podcast, "Broken Systems", is inspired by the recent trial and conviction of a homeless man named Michael Watkins.  He’s a habitual street offender. In fact, just days after his release from Santa Rita Jail, he was arrested on the same indecent exposure and lewd conduct charges for which he’d just done time.   And there are more Michael Watkins out there—we see them every day. A team of KCBS Radio reporters used the  case to launch a broader look at the systems that appear to be failing Michael Watkins as well as the rest of us. Stan Bunger hosts the podcast, joined by Holly Quan, Doug Sovern, Keith Menconi and series executive producer Nic Palmer.
