Being evicted used to be rare decades ago. But today, millions of Americans are forced out of their homes each year for not paying the rent. This, according to Matthew Desmond, a sociology professor with the Justice and Poverty Project at Harvard. Desmond lived in a trailer park and a rooming house in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, to document what happens to people after they are evicted. He witnessed families forever changed as they were forced into shelters, lost jobs and taken out of school. Guest host Tom Gjelten talks with Desmond about how the lives of eight families were transformed by eviction and what they tell us about the relationship between poverty and housing in America.
