Gimme Shelter podcast: Housing in the governor’s race

Housing has become a major issue in California’s race for governor. With the June primary less than a month away, Matt and Liam dive into each of the candidate’s plans to solve our affordability crisis. First, the Avocado of the Fortnight takes Matt to an extremely hot property in San Jose (2:50). Then a discussion of how gubernatorial candidates handled housing questions in this week’s debate (6:10). Liam walks us through each of the candidate’s plans–Newsom (13:00), Cox (18:00), Villaraigosa (20:00), Allen (23:00), Chiang (25:15), and Eastin (27:00). Finally, a roundtable with veteran political reporters Laurel Rosenhall of CALmatters and Phil Willon of the L.A. Times on how housing has played out in the race for governor.
