    Radio Specials Give Me Shelter: How the Bay Area is Tackling the Housing Crisis In the past five years, Bay Area home prices have surged by an astounding average of 72 percent. This is one reason why even six-figure household incomes are considered low income in certain parts of the Bay Area and why homeless tent encampments and the number of RVs lining the streets of cities across the region are growing dramatically. Currently, 1.5 million households in the Bay Area pay more than half of their income in rent. And people of color and seniors are being hit the hardest. But for the first time, the public, private, nonprofit and philanthropic sectors are working together on creative solutions to produce, preserve and protect affordable homes for all residents. Last fall, voters passed 15 affordable housing measures throughout the Bay Area. The tech giant Facebook has committed to help build a nearly $20 million fund to partner with local governments and nonprofits to create innovative and scalable affordable housing near its Menlo Park headquarters. KQEDs Mina Kim hosts this conversation.

    1A with Joshua Johnson Lecrae: A Christian Rapper Unafraid To Take On Religious Hypocrisy Lecrae shook up the worlds of hip-hop and religious music by becoming the first rapper to win a Grammy for Best Gospel Album in 2013.

He shares how his spiritual evolution is shaping him as an artist and an activist, and how some of the tracks on "All Things Work Together" came together.
