On July 6, 2017, Paul and Steve trek downtown to the Washington Post’s offices, where they catch up with Dan Steinberg.

Then, Dan talks about finding stories to write and dealing with the internet’s trolls (7:30-9:50).
Paul asks Dan about commiserating with fans over the inevitable D.C. sports losses, and they highlight other cities with championship droughts before chatting about the Nats’ chances this year.
