Episode 32: Unsuck DC Metro with, uh, @UnsuckDCMetro
If you’re a kid visiting Washington, D.C. – like I was the first time I rode public transit in Your Nation’s Capital – the Metro is kind of cool. If you’re a D.C.-area commuter, it’s… not so much fun. Folks who undergo this drudgery have a champion in Unsuck DC Metro, an anonymous journalist who has been chronicling the failings of D.C.’s subway since 2009. As the system begins a series of closures to fix critical safety issues, he joins this crummy little podcast to talk about Metro’s future and whether this time anything will actually change.

We talk about it in the podcast, but there’s also an old, defunct Unsuck DC Metro Blog. That it hasn’t updated in a few years is only obvious because of the dates on the posts; much of the content is still quite relevant.
