This week, on the podcast, we’re looking at the Metropolitan Police Department and transparency. Loose Lips reporter Mitch Ryals reported a story for the paper about D’Quan Young. An off-duty officer shot and killed Young in May of 2018, and few details, including the officer’s name, have emerged in ensuing nine months. Ryals and host Will Warren talk about MPD’s policies and how they differ from police departments across the country.

Warren also brings you the latest news about a lead paint hazard remediation program and a whites-only yoga Meetup “experiment.”
