The human toll of evictions

Hosted by

It’s not cheap to live in Santa Barbara. Even housing complexes that cater to low-income workers can stretch a family’s budget - and when there’s simply not enough money to write that rent check, a landlord will often issue an eviction notice. For families facing that situation, what happens next? Sociologist Matthew Desmond moved to Milwaukee and spent months living in trailer parks and low-income apartments, following the lives of poor people who bounce from place to place.
