This week the Sobremesa Podcast talks with Sophie Gonick from New York University about her up and coming book: Dispossession and Dissent.

We talk about how she documented the birth of the Plataforma de Afectados por la Hipoteca (PAH) (Platform for People Affected by Mortgages), and she also explains the housing crisis that went with it.

We later talk about housing policy and why council houses in Spain aren’t really a thing.

The Sobremesa Podcast is now available on GoogleSpotify and Apple
