SCRUM: Housing — Boston City Hall Versus The Market

Boston’s overheated real-estate market is already changing its fundamental character, and there’s grave concern that, in the future, lower- and middle-class people simply won’t be able to call the city home. Adam Reilly and Peter Kadzis speak with Boston City Councilors Lydia Edwards and Michelle Wu, who say there’s still time to craft policies to keep that from happening — and describe in detail what they think needs to be done. (Listen for a cameo from Cass, Councilor Wu’s charming younger son.)
