It's the summer of 2020, and I’m interning as a radio producer at New Hampshire Public Radio, working on a podcast called Outside/In. We’re working on a story about urban trees.“Are there any old podcast episodes about urban trees?” I ask my fellow producers.Yes, they tell me – Ginkgo Stink. I was excited to know there was an episode about this tree, because I've got a personal relationship to it. But there was one problem with it, a big problem. This episode, Ginkgo Love, addresses that problem, and tells my personal story about ginkgo trees.Episode Guests: Anita Mannur

Tanya Benson is raising her children and launching a baking business out of her house – a property she doesn't own and isn't renting. She and her family of five are squatting in the abandoned house, just one of many in their Detroit neighborhood. The Benson family has invested a lot of energy and money into the house – a huge risk by any measure, as they have no legal claim to the property, and could be forcibly removed at any moment. But their story may end happily as perceptions about squatters and housing change in the city of Detroit.This episode was produced by Rae Solomon and Felix Poon. Music from Blue Dot Sessions.
