Welcome to the third season of The Brick Underground Podcast.

In our first episode, hosts and Brick writers Nathan Tempey and Alanna Schubach discuss everything you need to know to enter—and hopefully win—New York's affordable housing lottery.

Nathan is a new senior editor at Brick, having come to the site in August from Gothamist, where he was a general assignment reporter focused on housing, politics, and criminal justice. Alanna is a reporter for Brick and started contributing articles to the site back in 2015. She is also a fiction writer and teaches for Gotham Writers Workshop.

Joining them on this episode is Max Jaeger, a reporter at the New York Post, and Nathan's former coworker at the Brooklyn Paper, a community weekly. Max just recently moved into an income-restricted one bedroom in Greenpoint Landing, a new luxury development on the East River at Newtown Creek that includes below-market apartments in exchange for a tax break. Max shared the story of his quest, and pointers that he gleaned along the way.
