Introducing “Adventures in Housing”
Welcome to our new series. We’re calling it “Adventures in Housing,” because more and more, that’s what finding and affording a place to live has become.
I’m Amy Scott, and I cover all things housing. We have a saying in my family: “Home is where most of your underwear is.” But of course it’s much more than that. Housing can determine where our kids go to school, how healthy we are, whether we can ever retire. And for too many people, a safe, stable place to live remains out of reach.
Whatever and wherever you call home, we want to hear about your adventures in housing. About the compromises, the workarounds, the sometimes monumental struggles. The roommates and houseguests and landlords. About buying, selling, renting and moving. About the dorms and shacks and money pits and houseboats and yurts and — you get the picture.
Share your story here, and we might just put you on the radio.
If you’re a member of your local public radio station, we thank you — because your support helps those stations keep programs like Marketplace on the air. But for Marketplace to continue to grow, we need additional investment from those who care most about what we do: superfans like you.
Your donation — as little as $5 — helps us create more content that matters to you and your community, and to reach more people where they are – whether that’s radio, podcasts or online.
When you contribute directly to Marketplace, you become a partner in that mission: someone who understands that when we all get smarter, everybody wins.
