In honor of the Fall Membership Campaign for WAMU (D.C.’s NPR station, 88.5FM), I’d like to give a shout-out to their Metro Connection program. This is a great resource for all DC area residents, but I think it’s especially useful for newbies. Just recently, for example, they aired a story about predatory towing companies. If you’ve lived here a few years, you’d already know that tow trucks are out for blood, but if you’ve recently moved from a more suburban area, you’d probably be just the prey they pray for.

Metro Connection airs on Fridays at 1pm and Saturdays at 7am (not often enough, in my opinion). You can also listen online or read a transcript on their website.
