The masks are off! Type of. In many places (but not all).

This week on the Voice of San Diego Podcast, hosts Scott Lewis, Andrew Keatts and Andrea Lopez-Villafaña talk about how weird it is that we’re doing this whole unmasking thing again — and what it means for kids going through school these days.

And the San Diego Union-Tribune revealed a strange allegation by prosecutors against former San Diego City Councilman Barbra Bry. It’s a strange, convoluted story that involves flawed paperwork, data-scraping technology, and housing (particularly vacation homes and tracking current property values).

Now Bry faces an uncertain future as the prosecutor escalates the matter to the criminal investigation department. This comes as Bry prepares to run for county assessor in this year’s election.

We’re breaking it all down on this week’s show.

And finally… San Diego’s cost of living is officially bananas.

Multiple reports released this week showed that San Diego’s sunshine and wet waves aren’t enough to keep up with soaring home and energy prices. Keatts also explains the findings of those reports and what’s happening in the housing market, as one analysis looked at the number of “investors” who own multiple homes in the area.
