This week on Washington City Podcast, we look at a slew of bills the Council considered during a mammoth legislative day. The Council got into, among other things, Metro fare evasion, the statute of limitations for prosecuting sexual abuse, who gets to vote, and hedgehog ownership. Host Will Warren catches you up on all that before Food Editor Laura Hayes joins him to discuss her cover story on mental health in D.C.’s restaurant industry.

Later in the episode, Sports Editor Kelyn Soong interviews Neal Henderson. Henderson is the founder of the Fort Dupont Ice Hockey Club and was a finalist for the NHL’s prestigious community award this year. The pair talked about his life as a hockey coach and fan as a part of our annual People Issue.
