    Sewage Water in DC, Olney Fans Sparking Controversy in Takoma, Met Gala - Who Cares?, H Street Has A NASCAR Driver

    On Sunday, Rock Creek stream in Northwest DC had a bright fluorescent green color. DC Water confirms that it was not toxic but a test for sewage water.

    Speaking of sewage water during last Sunday’s Washington Football game, fans were surprised with water dumping on them. Many said it was sewage water but FedEx Field confirmed via Twitter that it was rainwater - but it wasn’t raining?

    A satirical site in Takoma Park is having some fun with the Olney, MD baseball, developing a brand called “Olney Fans” a play on the controversial web site Only Fans. And now lawyers are involved but the satirical site is still hanging on to it.

    Celebrities in costume for a good cause, does anyone care about the Met Gala anymore?

    H Street Festival returns this weekend. Anwar Saleem the Festival’s Executive Director joins us for what it will be like this year - hint includes a NASCAR driver from DC.

Love this show. Like wine and Red Bull combined.

This show is the best. I don’t even live in DC and listen to it all the time. It’s like a great red wine and Red Bull combined - really good chill factor and an energy boost. The two hosts crack me up and are a total pick me up.
