On this last episode, we look back on 23 years of joyous, difficult and always informative conversation.
The D.C. Council may be on summer recess, but the waves made during their last session before break are still rippling throughout the District. We check in on D.C. politics — from the fate of Councilmember Jack Evans to the future of sports gambling in the District — with Council Chair Phil Mendelson.
Then we speak to Virginia Delegate Lee Carter; the Democratic Socialist is up for reelection, and he joins us to discuss his campaign staff’s decision to unionize, this year’s contentious legislative session, and the affordable housing crisis in Northern Virginia.
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.
