This week we can’t look away from the last days of the election

Nov 4, 2016

It is the last Week In Review before election day. We’ll be talking about the tightening polls and what local races to watch for on election night.

Also Vancouver has been dealing with an affordable housing crisis. They decided to put a tax on foreign buyers as a way to cool the housing market, and it’s working. But where will those buyers go? And should Seattle consider something similar?

And a Seattle architect wants to turn people into compost when they die. We ask the panel where they would want to have their composted bodies laid to rest.

We'll tackle these subjects and more on Week in Review.

Listen to the live discussion Friday at noon, join in by following @KUOW and using #KUOWwir. Audio from the show will be available to listen or podcast later in the afternoon.
