High rent. Long commutes. Expensive food. Childcare. Sea level rise. Gentrification. These are just some of the challenges of living in the Bay Area. Many are asking, should I stay or should I go? Or more pointedly, can I stay? If it’s not you, it’s your friends or your family who have grappled with these questions. We discuss those questions and more in our first live special recorded on Friday, April 26 at Manny's in San Francisco.
