For much of the pandemic, the place we live and the people we live with have become our entire world.

Almost one in three Americans lives in a “doubled up” household: with other adults who aren’t their partner or college-aged child.

This hour, we talk about sharing living spaces.

Cost is a big factor in housing arrangements, but living with roommates also has social implications.

We want to hear from you. Do you live with roommates, or in a multi-generational household?

GUESTS:

  • Kim Velsey - Reporter for New York Magazine’s real estate and design website, Curbed
  • Jennifer Molinsky - Senior Research Associate at the Joint Center for Housing Studies at Harvard
  • devin michelle bunten - Assistant Professor of Urban Economics and Housing at MIT
