Birmingham has seen new money, people and development pour into downtown and nearby neighborhoods in recent years. That’s prompted concerns of gentrification. Such discussion has popped up in the Birmingham mayoral runoff between Mayor William Bell and challenger Randall Woodfin. On this week’s edition of the WBHM Politics podcast, we talk about what exactly gentrification entails and how Birmingham leaders might respond.
Join WBHM host and producer Andrew Yeager, along with local government reporter Sherrel Wheeler Stewart, UAB business professor Anthony Hood and Urban Impact’s Elijah Davis.
Our theme music is “Find Your Way” by Birmingham guitarist Eric Essix.
