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.
Every night, at bars and dinner parties across Washington, one icebreaker question seems to be more common than others: “What do you do?” It sounds like a harmless query, but many Washingtonians bristle when the subject is broached.

We talk about whether or not it’s just a garden-variety introductory question or if it is a problematic part of modern Washington culture.
