NPR (and me) on the mortgage mess

I was invited to appear today on Talk of the Nation, the NPR call-in show hosted by Neal Conan (right). The topic was the mortgage mess, and who the winners and losers are. NPR posted a podcast or archived version of the segment, which ran 38 minutes, which you can access by clicking here.

I post this not because I like the sound of my voice, but because it is a call-in show, and the segment attracted a lot of callers from across the country who are being impacted — a woman in North Carolina who was given 10 days notice to vacate her condo because the owner had defaulted on the mortgage and the bank was kicking her out. A community activist who talked about how African-Americans were targeted by predatory lenders and are feeling the pain disproportionately. A code inspector from San Diego who talked about some of what he was seeing in neighborhoods there. Scary stuff. All worth a listen.
