Our first episode of the Our American Discourse podcast, features a conversation with Raphael W. Bostic. We confront the affordable housing crisis.

Housing costs are eating away an increasing share of the average family’s budget. Without sufficient renewal, the existing housing stock is aging, and the quality is declining. Affordability has reached crisis levels.
