There’s still time to nominate local icons for Best of D.C.
D.C.’s maternal mortality rate is well above the national average, and the city has finally established a committee to review the cases of mothers who die in the District. City Paper‘s Kayla Randall, who previously reported on the obstacles women giving birth in D.C. face, joins host Will Warren to talk about the new committee.
Warren also discusses the week’s news, which includes the Environmental Film Festival, DC Central Kitchen, and, of course, our Peeps diorama contest.
