On this last episode, we look back on 23 years of joyous, difficult and always informative conversation.
Guest Host: Marc Fisher
Four years ago, a 5.8 magnitude earthquake shook our region and caused millions in damage. Particularly hard hit were two of DC’s best known structures: the Washington Monument and the Washington National Cathedral. We speak with those involved in repairing the damage and a photographer who was able to shoot extraordinary images during the process.
- James Shepherd Architect; Director, Preservation and Facilities, Washington National Cathedral
- Colin Winterbottom Photographer
- Joe Alonso Head stonemason, Washington National Cathedral
