awesome community podcasting!

The DCPL Radio show does a great job of using its platform to celebrate the DC community + highlight important stories and people. I've learned so much about the different services provided by the DC Public Library and ways I can get involved in my city. I highly recommend this for any DC resident, especially someone looking to get connected with others.
