We all have things we're afraid of - and ways of responding to our particular fears. This week, we meet Washingtonians grappling with fears small and large - from anxiety over dancing in public to worries about losing a home. We'll also ask whether one community's fears of crime are overblown, and meet a woman who's coped with her fear of confined spaces by spending time in confined spaces... underground.
