This Week On Metro Connection: Favorite Stories From The Past Few Months (Transcript) | WAMU 88.5 - American University Radio


This Week on Metro Connection: A Summertime Sojourn Through the Archives


Welcome to "Metro Connection." I'm Rebecca Sheir and it's official, we've entered the dog days of summer. Vacation season's in full swing, the mercury is on the rise and most of us, pretty much, just want to sit in the shade somewhere with a frosty drink. Well, here on the show, we're taking advantage of this midpoint in the season to take a bit of a pause and revisit some of our favorite stories from the past few months. We'll hear how your summer jounce to the big apple could be affected by new rules for the bus companies that operate between D.C. and New York.


We'll turn to the skies and find out just how bad light pollution is in the nation's capital. And we'll meet the members of a highly competitive running team who push each other to the breaking point.
