Fall '15 in DC: Exploring DC @ NPR

There is literally no shortage of things to see and do in DC. Last week we took a tour of the state-of-the-art NPR headquarters, where we ran into senior legal affairs correspondent, Nina Totenberg (sound familiar? her voice might!). During our tour, we stopped at the Tiny Desk Studio, home of All Songs Considered, and where many notable musical artists (Macklemore, T-Pain, Adele) have performed acoustically. (Not pictured: losing all self-control in the NPR shop).
