In major cities across the country, residents have been forced out of their home at alarming rates, even before the pandemic.

Building on our previous episode, Hobos in Space, this discussion takes a look at housing and equity in San Francisco.

Episode 10: Back To The Way Things Were
An original musical! Don’t we all wish we could just go back to normal? Back to the way things used to be - before Covid, before the floods and wildfires, before we had Nazis rioting in the streets and in the Capitol, before the news was full of racist cops and sexually abusive men and greedy corporatists, and before four years of a honey-baked ham-brained criminal in the White House? Doesn’t that sound nice… or does it? Before we try to revive the good old days maybe we should ask - was the old normal really that good? Was it good at all? Well we created a musical about that! So settle back as we present a trip down reality lane with “Back To The Way Things Were”.
