This week sports editor Kelyn Soong profiled ESPN’s No. 1 basketball recruit for the class of 2021. High school sophomore Azzi Fudd is sensational. She’s already drawing comparisons to all-time greats and being heralded as “the future of women’s basketball.” She’s also shy, and reluctant to step out of her comfort zone. Soong and host Will Warren try to get to the bottom of what, exactly, makes her so great.

Warren also looks at the latest in housing, as reported by Morgan Baskin. D.C.’s troubled Department of Consumer and Regulatory Affairs has a new director, and Ward 1 Councilmember Brianne Nadeau wants to bring the also-troubled D.C. Housing Authority under the Office of the Mayor.
