We now know who is taking the helm at Metro. Randy Clarke — who comes to the D.C.-area from Austin, Texas — is stepping into what many consider one of the most challenging jobs in U.S. transportation. He’s tasked with rehabbing an underfunded and aging, yet essential transit system in the nation’s capital.

Then we speak with Johns Hopkins virologist Andrew Pekosz about the rising case count and where things stand with COVID-19, as many of us are getting sick this Spring.
