Episode Notes

Berkeley councilmembers Lori Droste and Rashi Kesarwani join us to discuss their effort to expand missing-middle housing options.

We also talk opportunity and belonging in the Bay Area. And a fun side story: UC Berkeley students' recent advocacy for housing at 2190 Shattuck, at what Laura describes as the "F*ck a View hearing," after a memorable student sign. (The councilmembers want you to know Laura called it that, not them.)

Lori and Rashi's missing-middle legislation, which is also sponsored by councilmembers Rigel Robinson and Ben Bartlett, will be presented to Berkeley's City Council on February 26th. East Bay for Everyone has details on that hearing, if you can show up.
