Council Radio Show Now Also Available as a Podcast

Just weeks after the Council’s “Hearing the Council” radio show debuted on DC Radio, past shows are now being made available as a podcast.

Each show consists of a half-hour interview with an individual councilmember. New councilmember interviews are added to the mix on DC Radio as interviews are conducted and produced for airing, with past interviews running in between debut shows.

While shows will continue to air first on DC Radio (3PM on weekdays, available at, or at 96.3 on your HD4 dial), they will then quickly be added to our podcast stream (available in the App Store or SoundCloud).

Now, in addition to tuning in to the show at 3PM as it airs on DC Radio, listeners will also be able to hear the show on demand—at the gym, on the Metro, fireside, or at exotic listening parties—whenever and wherever they choose.

The Council’s broad communication goal is spelled out on our Twitter page. We want to engage with residents in an informative, conversational, and sometimes even enjoyable way. We want to demystify our work, and the people who do it. This radio show and the podcast are exciting new tools in our communications toolbox.

Councilmembers Elissa Silverman, Brianne Nadeau, Jack Evans, Mary Cheh, Kenyan McDuffie, Vincent Gray, and Trayon White have already been interviewed, and their episodes are already available online. Councilmembers Charles Allen and Robert White have also been interviewed recently, and once their episodes have aired on DC Radio, they will be added to our podcast stream. Chairman Phil Mendelson, as well as Councilmembers Anita Bonds, David Grosso, and Brandon Todd have been scheduled for interviews in the coming weeks. Once all councilmembers have been interviewed once, they will be invited to return for subsequent rounds of interviews.
