Episode Info:

Tech workers abandoning Dublin due to housing costs, an Airbnb maintenance worker who is himself homeless, and the woman battling to transform Ireland’s swathe of vacant properties into homes. This episode takes an inside look at the housing crisis from the point of view of people facing the hard edge of the issue in different ways. As polls ahead of the election on February 8th indicate Taoiseach Leo Varadkar’s chance at a second term may be slipping away as support ebbs towards Sinn Féin and Fianna Fáil, Naomi O’Leary puts the appeal of promises to build social housing in context.
