    YIMBY London

    YIMBY London

    Mayor London Breed's 2020 inauguration speech. Featuring highlights such as:

    "Frankly, I am tired of hearing about our 'housing crisis.' Crises are unpredictable; they happen suddenly, and policymakers usually try to avoid them. Our housing problems were entirely predictable. They are the result of decades of almost intentional under-building, and the decision decades ago to down-zone almost three-quarters of the city and ban apartments.

    We don’t have a housing crisis. We have a housing shortage."

Love the pod! Would love to hear more frequently.

This pod was a big reason why I learned about and got more involved in YIMBY Action. Would be great to hear more regularly from this feed or to have a separate one that gives some analysis on recent housing developments.

Great podcast!

I love that this podcast brings in guests who are not YIMBYs. It brings out all sorts of interesting nuance about housing in SF and beyond.
