Polling place

With the election less than three weeks away, we get an update on races across Maryland from the state’s Republican Party Chair Dirk Haire. Then, Jamie Sycamore, an American Sign Language interpreter, disabilities advocate and LGBTQ activist joins us to talk about his run for D.C. Council. Plus we discuss the biggest regional political news, from a Montgomery County Executive debate to D.C.’s repeal of Initiative 77.

Sorting political fact from fiction, and having fun while we’re at it. Join us for our weekly review of the politics, policies, and personalities of the District of Columbia, Maryland and Virginia.
