Maryland Senator Ben Cardin joins us to talk about the youth movement against gun violence, Russian sanctions, and more. D.C. Councilmember Mary Cheh shares her thoughts on relief for high water bills and news that D.C. Public Schools is taking over an all girls charter school.
As development, gentrification and professional opportunities reconfigure D.C., new neighbors move in, bringing new backgrounds, politics, philosophies and traditions. These differences create a uniquely diverse region, but can also lead to neighborly misunderstandings, where seemingly small disagreements can become multi-year, community-dividing feuds that spill over our attached townhouses and backyards. A play currently showing at Arena Stage, “Native Gardens,” was inspired by such disputes- it tells the story of neighbors who go to war over where their property lines end. Kojo explores the tension that can develop among neighbors in places where change is afoot and what it means to be a good neighbor in an evolving city.
