Listen to this as soon it comes out

Great in depth discussion of a major CA political issue that I follow closely.

Bingeworthy

It’s a great primer on housing policy and the latest solutions proposed to fix affordability. California-specific but lessons learned apply globally.

Matt uncomfortably forgets to recuse himself as a biased beneficiary of Prop 13 - he even refers to winners of Prop 13 as “us” by which he means his parents who own a home that he and his sister will inherit at uniquely low property tax rates unlike any other place worldwide.

Narrow understanding of economics but their guests generally make up for this and are quick to correct them.

Otherwise it’s been basically perfect so you still get all five stars. Keep pouring more knowledge on us. My favorite knowledge is from professors and experts (🙏 no equal time for climate science deniers and their next of kin).

Very good

I met Liam at a party and started talking about hosting policy, which lead me to this podcast. It is excellent, and as an added bonus, I don't have to leave my apartment and go to a party.
