Great Pod - Regardless of Where You Live

Wonderful interviews that provide deep insight into how our nation's capital works at a practical and useful level. Just great listening.

When character was king

Andy, his guests, and their stories are a window into a bygone era in DC, when personalities were big and fun and vitriol and animosity were rare. I grew up in DC and remember all of these names, and their stories are priceless. Andy's charm and good humor are the perfect element for these chats. Keep the episodes coming!
