How did it come to pass that Stranger writer Rich Smith found himself shirtless, save for a leather harness, while racing a leather daddy on a Solowheel? At 1:21, Rich explains. After that, fortified with Solowheel warmth, we head into two very important fights over taxes. First, at 9:02, free market enthusiast Roger Valdez of Smart Growth Seattle argues with housing affordability activists—including Cary Moon from last week’s episode—who want to increase taxes and regulation on development in order to fund affordable housing. Then, at 22:03, Washington State Senator Reuven Carlyle of Ballard explains why a disagreement over taxes led him to recently come out against the Sound Transit 3 expansion of light rail—an expansion that, if approved by voters this November, will bring light rail to Ballard! Plus, as always, the music of Ahamefule J. Oluo.
