What exactly is "affordable" housing, and what's wrong (and right) with the housing in Duluth?

This week Jeff Corey, executive director of One Roof Community Housing, joins us to talk about Duluth's aging housing stock, helping the homeless population and the renovation of Gateway Tower.

Oh, and here's something you might not know: Corey is into skiing, biking and trail running — even though he is legally blind.

What we are into this week: Streaming "Broadchurch" and "Jessica Jones," reading "The Sympathizer" by Viet Thanh Nguyen, the podcast "Time Crisis Countdown" and Louise Erdrich's book, "The Last Report on the Miracles at Little No Horse."

Tune in every week to hear Duluth News Tribune reporters Brady Slater, Christa Lawler and Tom Olsen talk about current Duluth and Northland happenings. You can email us at, call our podcast line at (218) 382-NEWS or follow us on Facebook. This podcast is produced by Barrett Chase.
