About this Episode

Young Voices contributor and Reason Foundation policy analyst Jen Sidorova joins the show to explain how the government's "eviction moratorium," a ban on evictions meant to help renters struggling amid the COVID recession, is destroying the rental market and screwing over landlords like her.

What happens when people don't have to pay rent? Are landlords really all rich people? What will happen when the music stops and the moratorium ends?

We discuss all this and more.
