Freddie in the field

Freddie in the Field is a weekly podcast hosted by DMV-native and world-famous conversationalist “Innkeeper Freddie”, owner/operator of Union Inn in Washington, DC. Armed with a microphone and an audio recorder, Freddie ventures outside the Full Service Radio’s studio (i.e. “the field”) to cover notable District events/happenings with his unique brand of field reporting. Freddie’s collection of DMV luminaries and personalities of note from “the field” are also brought in-studio for lively discussion and discourse.

Freddie and Matt also discuss DRC’s retail and philanthropic partnerships, races/marathons of note, and the successes/challenges DRC has experienced as a minority-majority running crew over the last 5 years and running (see what I did there ;-).
