A great deal of the national conversation is driven by decisions made by state and national officials. But what about decisions that are made much closer to places in the country that many Americans call home?

Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan sits down with us to discuss the tech economy, the affordability crisis, access to opportunity, homelessness and worker protections.

Produced by Stacia Brown.
