The topic of self-storage auctions was the subject of a recent “This American Life” segment produced by Chicago Public Radio. On Jan. 22, the show featured a report by Jon Mooallem, author for The New York Times Magazine. He visited self-storage auctions in Northern California, learning about the techniques people use to discern “junk” from “treasure” during lien sales, as they are not allowed to rummage through storage units in advance.
