Mr. McAdams goes to Washington

This is the first episode of a podcast that will explore whether a successful democratic mayor from a red state can find a way to accomplish anything of significance in the deeply partisan Washington, D. C. Ben McAdams earned a narrow victory over the Republican incumbent, and he now represents Utah’s Fourth Congressional District. In this first episode, he discusses being sworn in during the longest government shutdown in U.S. history, and he interviews his wife, Julie McAdams and the wife of New York Representative Antonio Delgado, Lacey Schwartz Delgado. Welcome to WashingTown!
