On this last episode, we look back on 23 years of joyous, difficult and always informative conversation.
Few development projects in D.C. have caused as much neighborhood uproar as the proposed plans for the McMillan sand filtration site, which sits along a strip of North Capitol Street in a rapidly changing part of the city.

Kojo explores what’s at stake in the debate and where it’s heading next.
