Last year, Stranger reporter Heidi Groover exposed some sweetheart move-in deals that Seattle landlords were offering only to tech workers and other high-income apartment hunters. (Not eligible for sweetheart deals: poorer apartment hunters.) This week, the Seattle City Council passed a law against such deals and at 1:35, Heidi explains what the new law means.

Then, at 5:20, local urban planning activist Cary Moon is on to talk about the bigger picture of this city’s ongoing housing crisis and what additional laws and taxes could do to help.

After that, at 14:19, Stranger visual art critic Jen Graves talks about the recent Seattle Art Fair, what it was good for, what it lacked, and the impressive satellite shows you can still see.

A photograph from one of those satellite shows is at left. Graves describes it as "powerful" and "a reminder of the different ways that we are judged and judge each other as women across racial lines." (Here's Graves's Facebook live discussion with the artist and subject—starts at about 6:00.)

Finally, at 32:06, we tell you what to do this weekend. Plus, as always, music from Ahamefule J. Oluo.
