People with disabilities face a double-edged sword when it comes to finding housing. Not only is housing in Phoenix becoming increasingly expensive, but it can also be hard to find a home that’s accessible. In this episode, Host Andrea Pasquale explores the concept of Universal Design, the idea that buildings should be built with accessibility features up front instead of as an afterthought. And John Beaubien describes the modifications he needed to make to his home in order to make it livable.
