The Landlord And Tenant Podmess

Welcome to the Landlord And Tenant Podmess, the only podcast with the guts to ask the question: can a landlord and tenant be buddies?

Each week, co-hosts Michael Balazo (a 30-something tenant) and James Hartnett (a young Toronto landlord) discuss building politics, play silly games and interview fascinating guests. Things often get heated, but they're certainly never dull!

Also available on Apple Podcasts, Google Play, Stitcher and TuneIn.
