This week, we'll explore suburban communities and the stories behind them.

We dive in to the complex, ever-changing suburban communities of our region. We'll explore the military's role in shaping the 'burbs, and go inside the rapidly-growing Indian community in Loudoun County. Plus, the heated debate over sprawl in Maryland, and just how far you can get outside the city... and still be considered part of the Washington area?

[Music: "Every Little Bit Hurts" by John Davis from Title Tracks]
