In this tenth (!!) episode of the Holistic Housing Podcast, the NACCED crew is joined by Bob Simpson, VP of Multifamily Affordable and Green Finance for Fannie Mae. Bob shares his perspective on the positive multi-generational effects of healthy and affordable housing, how Fannie Mae is investing in people and not just properties, why Fox was totally wrong to cancel “Firefly,” and why watching Star Trek is a better investment than business school (you’ll learn the same stuff). Plus, Charlie’s Angels tackle issues like whether ketchup ice cream is worth trying and whether Harry and Meghan are going to last. And don’t forget to listen all the way to the end for a special bonus conversation with one of Pittsburgh’s favorite sons, NACCED Board Member Jim Johnston, who is, as it turns out, highly superstitious when it comes to hockey. Thanks to Fannie Mae for sponsoring this episode!
