MS. REBECCA SHEIR
Welcome to "Metro Connection." I'm Rebecca Sheir, and before we get started today, I want you to think about something. What are you afraid of? If you're like most of us, you probably have a fairly decent list from little nagging worries to bigger stuff, like concerns about jobs, health, relationships. Well, on today's show, we're facing all sorts of fears head on. We'll visit a group of artists who fear losing their homes and workspaces. We'll crawl into a cave to get a firsthand feel of claustrophobia and we'll hit a karaoke bar with a Washingtonian on a month-long campaign to tackle her fears one by one.
