Voice of San Diego reporters have been digging into the biggest drivers of San Diego’s high costs: housing, transportation, water, energy and more. And this week on the podcast, hosts Scott Lewis and Andrew Keatts discuss the biggest findings from the series.

On the podcast, Keatts explains how housing prices affect transportation — and the true costs of life designed around long commutes.
