The Q Speaks: https://flic.kr/p/e84Cao

We'll delve into stories of the secret and surreptitious side of life in Washington. We'll visit an underground vault full of literary treasures. We'll meet a man who once worked at America's most tightly-secured home: We'll attend an off-the-record dinner party where weighty conversation is par for the course. And we'll find out why D.C.'s concert scene may be headed to a living room near you.
