  1. Friends Remember Marion Christopher Barry

    The death of Christopher Barry came unexpectedly. He was the only child of former D.C. Mayor Marion Barry and Effi Barry and had eulogized both of his parents. A group of friends gathered at We Act Radio in Anacostia to share memories; many that did not make it into many media stories of his death. Thanks to Kymone Freeman for sharing these powerful words.

  2. In Go-Go’s ‘Pocket’: Localore Finding America Series, Washington DC

    Musician, actor and longtime Southeast D.C. resident Jason Anderson has been playing go-go since he was young. He talks with Anacostia Unmapped contributor John Johnson about his love for neighborhood heroes the Junkyard Band, and what it’s like when a go-go band finds the "pocket" — the part of a song when percussion reigns supreme and the crowd is fully absorbed in Washington’s home-grown offshoot of funk music.

  4. Longform Podcast Bonus: Noreen Malone

    Noreen Malone wrote "Cosby: The Women — An Unwanted Sisterhood," this week’s cover story in New York.“We interviewed them all separately, and that was what was so striking: they all kept saying the same thing, down to the details of what they say Cosby did and how they processed it. Those echoes were what helped us know how to shape the story.”Thanks to our sponsor, TinyLetter.
