Now, a clinic inside a youth homeless shelter in Seattle’s Belltown has found an innovative way to get people connected to services - by offering vet care.

You can find Ruby De Luna story here on And, we want to hear from you! Follow us on Instagram @SeattleNowPod, or leave us feedback online:

The midterm elections are only a few days away, but it seems many folks are tuning out this year. One reason to tune in: Republican Tiffany Smiley is giving longtime Washington Senator Patty Murray a run for her money. The race is getting national attention. Plus, we're grapplin
