Sacramento's housing shortage affects everyone from middle-class renters priced out of prime neighborhoods to homeowners concerned about change in their community to homeless people sleeping (and dying) on the steps of City Hall.

There just aren't enough affordable places to live.

On Friday Oct. 6, The View From Here will release a 1-hour audio documentary, capping off our Place and Privilege series. The show explores the history, politics and economics of housing affordability through the personal stories of neighbors who are hit the hardest and living on the edge.

We’re thrilled to share a sneak peek of the documentary. Click the player above to hear an audio trailer of Place and Privilege.
