Jun 2, 2016

So you're walking down the street, and you see one of those people with a clipboard and they try and lure you to help them with their virtuous cause.

What do you do? Do you feel guilty? Annoyed? Do you talk to them, or do you just keep walking?

Have you ever wondered what’s it like to be the person doing the asking, all day every day?

Casey Miner, producer for the podcast, The Specialist,  met canvasser Johanna Holden on a San Francisco street corner. Miner teamed up with reporter Raja Shah to find out what it's like to do Holden's job.
