This week on Washington City Podcast host Will Warren and housing complex reporter Morgan Baskin talk about Baskin’s investigation into D.C.’s child welfare agency. The investigation was several years in the making, and looks at the devastating effects of an agency that is cutting corners to meet requirements set by a federal lawsuit. Per Baskin’s reporting, both Child and Family Services Agency employees and the children they serve suffer. She talks about her story this week.

Warren also looks at the week’s news: contract fraud and a cover up at the Department of Behavioral Health, the Metro PCS go-go controversy, and our Peeps diorama contest!
