This week, the podcast takes up a controversial issue in Portland and around the state: renter protections. We dig into the new Portland city ordinance that requires landlords to assist tenants with relocation costs in the case of a no-cause eviction. We’ll also talk about how the Oregon Legislature is grappling with housing issues. Host Julie Sabatier talks with OPB senior political reporter Jeff Mapes and Dirk VanderHart, news editor for the Portland Mercury.
