We'll get a jump on Fourth of July celebrations with a show all about independence. We'll learn the surprising ways Capital Bikeshare is affecting small, independent bike shops, and check out a Fringe Festival show that's performed for—and with—one audience member at a time. We'll also hear the tale of a painter who took his artistic license to the extreme, and we'll hit the street to talk with Washingtonians about the first time they felt a sense of independence in their own lives.
