Here’s this week’s episode of Denverite Now, your favorite Denver news podcast!

Here’s how our host, Paul Karolyi, describes this episode:

This week on Denverite Now…

1) We’ve got a new installment of “Where’s Kevin Now?” If you think you know where Kevin is, send your guess to tips@denverite.com. We’re going to send four tickets to the Sun Drenched Music Fest at the Denver Beer Co. on June 3 to each of the first two correct responders. Just put “Denverite Now” in the subject line!

2) City reporter Andy Kenney gives us the low-down on the city’s new strategy to address affordable housing. Here’s Andy’s report on the subject:

Denver is “moving beyond housing-first approach,” announces 30 actions on housing crisis

3) Dining and nightlife reporter Ashley Dean discusses Denver International Airport’s efforts to improve its dining options, including this recent announcement:

DIA might get its own Central Market, and the airport definitely got a Roasting Plant Coffee

4) Transportation and real estate reporter Megan Arellano delivers the results of the RTD board’s decision on its discounted fare program:

Low-income fares program won’t expand despite demand, RTD board decides

Check out last week’s episode of Denverite Now for Megan’s breakdown of the debate surrounding RTD’s discounted fare program.

And here’s Megan’s report on the (so far) unsuccessful Lyft program in Centennial:

Centennial’s Lyft pilot cost about twice as much as Call-n-Rides, got fewer rides
