On the October 27th edition of Your Call, we’ll have a conversation about Company Town, a new documentary that tells the story of a local election campaign and political decisions that will determine the future of San Francisco.

Since 2010, evictions in the city have soared with the influx of global capital and companies like Airbnb. Can grassroots democracy reclaim the city? Tweet your questions and comments to @yourcallradio and join us live at 10am with me, Rose Aguilar and you.

Guests:

Deborah Kaufman, director and producer of Company Town

David Talbot, founder and former editor-in-chief of Salon, and author of The Devil’s Chessboard: Allen Dulles, the CIA, and the Rise of America's Secret Government

Tim Redmond, founder and editor of 48 Hill
