Kojo speaks with Arlington Board Chair Katie Cristol about the Amazon HQ2 effect and D.C. Attorney General Karl Racine about his probe into the local Catholic Church and his office's legal challenges against the Trump administration.
Guest Host: Jennifer Golbeck
Locals have been playing regular pickup soccer games at Harriet Tubman Elementary in Columbia Heights for years, but the semi-organized groups had never formalized their use of the field with a permit. As the neighborhood has changed, other groups have laid claim to the space, including a bocce club, and more recently, a private soccer league. We explore the challenge of fairly allocating recreation space in a changing city.
