UpZones #41: Boting Zhang | Cascadia Underground
Organizer and real estate strategist Bo Zhang talks about how her experience in rural Japan shaped her sense of community -- and how lack of community creates trauma. Bo fills Ian in on her family struggles and how they impacted her decision to enter a technical career; they discuss the difference between "free market" and "capitalism," what Bo thinks was a major political failure on her part, and the Bramble Project, a group focusing on the corners of the real estate industry that intersect with community development and neighborhood-level social structure.
