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.
After the Great Recession and during the Obama presidency, millennials flocked to the nation’s capital in droves. Symbolically, the district represented change and idealism. Practically, it was also a hub for jobs. Local leaders welcomed them, marketing the city as a hip home where they could start their careers. But now, for the first time since 2009, more people are leaving the Washington region than arriving ––including millennials. Kojo sits down with researchers to understand why migration to D.C. has slowed, how millennials factor into the current makeup of the city and what it means when they leave.
