Dirk Haire, the Chair of Maryland's GOP, joins us to talk about the upcoming election. And we meet Jamie Sycamore, who is running as an Independent for the D.C. Council.
Whether you prefer a bourbon neat, a trendy bitter aperitif or the most potent shooter behind the bar, the world of alcohol offers something for even the most adventurous palate.

Kojo learns about the history and challenges behind making this finicky social lubricant.
