On this last episode, we look back on 23 years of joyous, difficult and always informative conversation.
Guest Host: Jennifer Golbeck
When housing prices rise, the poor move out and the well-to-do move in. It’s a process Washington has seen in neighborhood after neighborhood. But where do Washingtonians who are pushed out by gentrification go? Increasingly, a growing concentration of the city’s poor reside in Wards 7 and 8. A recent study suggests that rising housing costs west of the Anacostia are the reason why. Kojo explores the city’s shifting economic inequalities and how to best address them.
