Should I Stay Or Should I Go?

Listen to the trailer here.

A CityTalk podcast by Urbanarium

Jenny Tan is on a mission to figure out how to keep living in Metro Vancouver. After years of increases in housing costs, she’s not sure if she can afford to stay in the region she calls home. From Jenny’s trailer home on the west side of Vancouver, she speaks with experts on topics like money laundering, speculation, and zoning to answer the big question: should she stay or should she go? 

Her guests include Sonja Trauss, president of YIMBY, a non-profit that sues cities for not obeying their own housing laws, journalist/writer Sam Cooper author of Willful Blindness, developers Heather Tremain, Tony Pappajohn and Leslie Shieh, Andy Yan, director of SFU's City Program, housing minister David Eby and her mom.

Each episode Jenny processes her conversations with architect and Urbanarium Board Member Bruce Hayden.
