An ad placed on Seattle's bus lines has caused an uproar on the web, and a fierce debate in the GeekWire offices. The ad was for Code Fellows, a Seattle-based coding school, and made what some saw as insensitive comments about Seattle's housing crisis. We unpack the ad and the issues behind it in this lively, debate-style episode of the GeekWire Podcast.
