Wish there were more podcasts like this

I’ll admit, I was half listening at times but it would make me stop and rewind because it was interesting. These are the types of stories so many people need to hear. The way we talk about poor people in America, esp. poor people of color, implies that they somehow “did something” to deserve living in poverty.

I was really hoping that this show would get deeper into the policies and effects of government-backed loans and redlining and the inequities of acquired generational wealth due to housing discrimination among other things, but maybe for another podcast?!

Too short

Incredibly too short. With the unsuspecting surveillance and absolute need for control, I won’t look at public housing the same ever again.
