Gimme Shelter Pod: An opening in Prop 13, Margaret Atwood as NIMBY heel, and an interview with Carol Galante

Every week, Los Angeles Times housing reporter Liam Dillon and CALmatters’ data reporter Matt Levin chat about the latest developments in California housing policy and interview a key housing newsmaker. This week, Matt and Liam discuss the Margaret Atwood NIMBY controversy (3:00), why the housing package didn’t pass last week (8:00), and whether the state Supreme Court created a gaping hole in Prop 13 or something more ambiguous (9:30). Then we speak with Obama-era HUD official and UC Berkeley housing expert Carol Galante on what’s missing from the state housing package (18:00). Subscribe to us on iTunes and Stitcher!
