California Dreamin’: Live in a Pod, Wade Through a Sewer, Try to Avoid the Plague

Pilgrims to the former entertainment capital of the world find that California dreamin’ today means they’ll live in a pod, wade through a sewer and try to avoid the plague.

While the movie business has scattered across the country and around the world, young people still flock to a place where great weather (and a few tech firms) drive the cost of real estate so high, they have to downgrade from their college dorm but still pay $1,200 per month. The next step, for some, is life under a bridge.

Are people going to California to see a place that doesn’t exist anymore? Or is Podshare a beautiful example of how free markets adapt?
