Kojo speaks with "Speak No Evil" novelist and D.C. native Uzodinma Iweala about his second novel and how his local upbringing affects his storytelling.
Guest Host: Rebecca Sheir
Jim Graham served nearly two decades on the D.C. Council – a political career that followed many years of running the Whitman-Walker Clinic in the District. But now he’s out of politics, and his first new job is a bit more “dressed-down” than those he’s held in the past: he’s promoting weekly events for a D.C. club that features male dancers. We chat with Graham about his new professional adventure and what he learned from his time in public service.
