364: Could an Algorithm Stop You from Getting Your Next Apartment?

Hey, I'm Chris.

I'm a former Analyst, Podcaster, and Producer. My goal is to help you understand your finances better in about the time it takes to make a bag of popcorn!

Is an algorithm the reason your rental applications aren’t getting approved? Robb Dunewood, the host of the popular podcast The Tech Jawn, is on the show today to talk about algorithms and the ways in which they are created that can negatively affect black and brown communities. Robb helps define what an algorithm is and breaks down a recent lawsuit against one of the leading algorithm-based tenant screening services used by landlords across the country.
