Bob the EvangelistThis guest is a landmark all by himself: Bob Westin -- AKA "That guy downtown with the sign about the end of the world."

I see him quite often during my day to day travel, and when I do, I always wonder who he is. Does he have a job? Does he have a home? Is he crazy?

I ran into Bob on the platform in the Park Street T Station where he was handing out his last few pamphlets before calling it a day. I had my recorder, so I walked up and asked him for an interview. He usually gets his dinner for free from the leftovers of a few of the Quincy Market food vendors, so I went over there with him for a conversation about his life.
