Local elections happened on Tuesday in D.C., and Washington City Podcast will tell you everything you need to know about this week’s vote. We look at the outcomes of a few ANC races we’ve been following and the impact the House of Representatives flipping might have on D.C.’s weed laws. Then, Mitch Ryals joins host Will Warren to talk about the outcomes of big races and what comes next.

City Paper also published its annual people issue this week. We’ve recorded some of those conversations and are presenting the first of these here. Pops Mensah-Bonsu is the inaugural general manager of the Capital City Go-Go, and he joins Kelyn Soong to talk about his career as a journeyman, his goals for the Go-Go, and hotel rooms. You won’t want to miss it.
