COMING SOON | Growth Machine: How Austin Engineered Its Housing Market

Growth Machine

By: Audrey McGlinchy

Housing prices in Austin have exploded in the past decade, leading to a city that’s not just unaffordable — but also highly segregated. None of this happened by accident. It’s the result of decades of decisions about what — if anything — gets built in Austin and where. From a master plan to move Black and brown residents to one part of town, to fights over how to protect the environment, to an outdated land development code — all of these are pieces in a machine that’s engineered Austin’s housing market. Hosted by Audrey McGlinchy. Coming in June from KUT & KUTX Studios.
