In news that will surprise no one, Seattle has a housing shortage. One solution is to get rid of single-family zoning and make it easier to build things like duplexes and triplexes. Seattle has rejected this idea a number of times, but all the way across the state, Spokane is embracing it.

KUOW Joshua McNichols tells us how Spokane is approaching this issue differently, and what Seattle can learn from their experience.
