It's been a while y'all.

Our guest today is Jerusalem Demsas, policy reporter at Vox and co-host of The Weeds. At Building the Dream, we are really into, well, building. We want to build houses, factories, hospitals, rail, roads, and everything else that's needed to create a thriving life for everyone. But we keep hearing about one big catch with this idea-- America is notoriously difficult to build in. It costs more and takes longer to build anything in this country. Why is that? We dive into it today with Jerusalem.
