We value your support now more than ever.

All year we’ve been covering the issues that matter most to you—the pandemic, the election, policing, housing, and more—and now our end of year membership campaign is here. Will you support our work to ensure we can bring you the same informative local reporting in 2021?

City Paper‘s housing reporter Morgan Baskin has been writing about D.C.’s public housing stock for months, covering the conditions in those units and the dire updates they need. She joins host Will Warren to talk about the DC Housing Authority and the uncertain future thousands of its residents face.

Warren also looks at the week’s news, which includes deep dives into Union Kitchen’s accelerator and the people and organizations that donated to Mayor Muriel Bowser‘s inaugural committee.
