On this episode of the #housingpodcast, the NACCED crew are joined by Diane Yentel, the oft-quoted and influential CEO & President of the National Low Income Housing Coalition. This conversation touches on everything from benefits cuts to getting out the vote, and why it’s critical to build the political will to solve issues like homelessness. We also learn that not only is Diane a pro at coalition building (and maintaining a highly relevant Twitter feed), but she’s also very good at coming up with a theme song on the spot. Plus, find out what Diane’s TED talk would be about, hear Laura do a terrible impression of a robot, and Sarah reveals she has an alternate personality that only comes out at the beach. As usual, Heather asks all the smart questions. What a show!
