Tiny house tales podcast

The dynamic duo is back at it again. John and Zack are wonderful hosts. This time in podcast form. It is sad that after so many years of tiny houses being a thing. Our governments still have not made them legal. There is a continuing issue of lack of affordable housing. Here is an obvious solution, but there is such a slow adoption! I am thankful that many people are taking affordable housing into their own hands. To the point that many are living in vehicles full time. Bureaucrats do not have the best interests of the people in mind. Only keeping their jobs. In the end, we the people, are making the decisions for ourselves and not waiting for government to figure it out. I am an advocate of vehicle dwelling when there are no other alternatives. Or to choose vehicle dwelling as a cost cutting alternative.

Even though I get to watch re-runs for free on Sony tv plus, I am glad you all started a pod cast! Love it.
