Baltimore is a city of renters. Of the 622,000 of us who live here, more than half of us rent, rather than own, our homes.  The majority of renters are low income. A new report from the Public Justice Center indicates that problems with renting, evictions and fees are systemic.  And many of those problems are with what’s known as Rent Court.  We’re going to take a close look at the Baltimore Rent Court with the author of the Public Justice Center report, a researcher, an organizer and a tenant.

Plus, theater critic J Wynn Rousuck reviews the latest production at the Fells Point Corner Theater. 

And the music of Sweet Saro.  They’ll talk with producer JonnaMcKone about the sonic experience of recording an album in a home in rural Maryland.

Host, Midday (M-F 12:00-1:00)
