Podcast #10 – The Future of Student Housing with Andrew Hasek

The next podcast is here. Just in time for back-to-school classes, Nate Hood and I sat down and chatted with Andrew Hasek, who is a student organizer trying to fight the recently approved St Paul student housing ordinance.

We met up at the Blue Door pub last week, early enough in the afternoon to get a seat but late enough to enjoy their wonderful happy hour. Check out our conversation, which covers everything from old St Thomas snowball traditions to a bunch of reasons why the ordinance might be poor public policy.
