Our theme this week is "A Different Drummer," as we celebrate Independence Day with stories of adventurers and iconoclasts. We'll hear from entrepreneurs working to find the next big thing in D.C.'s food scene. And we'll check out the theater festival that takes artistic risk to a new level. Plus, we'll meet the man who keeps the beat for the National Symphony Orchestra, and we'll tour an exhibit that challenges our view of some of our most cherished American icons.

Music: "Every Little Bit Hurts" by Title Tracks from It Was Easy / "Medley: Yankee Doodle, Overture to 1776" by The Ohio State University Marching Band from Stars Stripes 'n' Brass
