How have Washington and Baltimore quarterbacks past and present marked the highs and lows of Washington football? John Feinstein joins Kojo to discuss the highly coveted and incredibly scrutinized position.
Legions of little girls aspire to be prima ballerinas. But few of their brothers ask for lessons. Parents tend to encourage boys to pursue sports and martial arts, but not ballet — though it can require even more athleticism. And boys in ballet can still expect to be teased or worse.
Attitudes are changing though, and opportunities are opening up for boys — even those from poorer neighborhoods where going to the ballet is not something families typically do. How is the local ballet world trying to welcome boys?
