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.
Last week, Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan gave the wealthy businessman Elon Musk permission to dig tunnels for an underground transit system called a hyperloop. The long term goal is to create a transit system that can transport people from Washington to New York in under 30 minutes with stops in Baltimore and Philadelphia. At the same time, proponents of a “maglev,” a high speed rail technology that uses magnetic levitation to move trains faster than any other method, are pushing for the construction of a Baltimore-Washington connector. We discuss how each of these projects could affect the region and the relationship between two large urban areas.
