David Raether was a television comedy writer for most of the 1990s, most notably including a four-year run with "Roseanne." After leaving television to focus on family, he couldn't get back into employment, lost his nest egg and his home, and became homeless. David talks with Matt about his life, having eight kids, writing in television, what its like to lose it all and live on the streets, and the story of how he picked himself back up.
His recently released memoir is called "Tell Me Something, She Said."
