Bill Radke speaks with Kate Lebo about why she left her life in Seattle to move to Spokane. We all know new people are flooding into this area, but as all these people move in, who are the people moving out?

Lebo grew up in Vancouver, Washington. She thought of Seattle as the ultimate person maker --she'll tell you what she meant by that.

She moved here after college in 2005 and after seven years, she couldn't afford her life in Ballard anymore. So she finally settled in Spokane. She tells Bill Radke about her life after Seattle.
