Episode 11 of Priced Out the Podcast is about the great city of St. Louis, MO. The city is a wonderful place with great people and a lot of new potential. There is new energy and growth going on, but the city has a long and troubling past and continues to be challenged by vast poverty, discrimination and neglect.
We talk with two residents Rebeca Carlos, host of the podcast Explain to Me and artist and community activist Kevin Hopkins.
We talk about the city's deep history of segregation, the Delmar Divide, the Riots of 1916, the poverty and abandonment of East Louis Louis and North St. Louis White Flight in Spanish Lakes and speculate if big property owners are playing games and driving down land values like they have done in Detroit.
We also talk about the early signs of gentrification or "revitalization" in the Delmar Loop, Benton Park, South City the Grove and elsewhere.
