We Won Gold at DC WebFest, Bonus Content

April 8, 2018

We were honored to win Gold at the DC WebFest this weekend!  We're totally blown away, and we're totally going to refer to ourselves as "award-winning podcasters" from here on out. 

For the festival, we put together a short piece that gives a little flavor of the show. We thought we could share this bonus content with your podcast feed. And don't worry - we're working on season 2 right now, so there's more DC Diary to come. 

Thank you for listening and supporting the show, and thank you for lending your voices and stories to us so we can keep creating.  


S1 Ep.6: Earth to Washington

January 22, 2018

Sometimes we get caught up in the crazy news cycle and we lose track of what's really going on around us. In this episode, we do a quick reality check for Washingtonians. At happy hour, you answered the question, "What's something everyone knows but no one wants to admit?" And Stephanie talks to Mike Gula, a Republican fundraiser, about what it's really like watching from the inside.

This is the last episode of Season 1 of DC Diary! Thanks for sticking with us over the past year. Make sure to subscribe to the podcast and follow us on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter for updates. We'll have new events and episodes for you soon. Our brand new theme song was composed by Bryson Kemp, you can find him at brysonkempmusic.com. Other music in our episode was composed by Broke for Free, Miró Belle, Jahzzar, and Podington Bear.

Our sponsors for this episode are Time on the Hill and Pixel Eyewear. Adam Hainsfurther is our Executive Producer.


S1 Ep.5: The One About Dating In DC

December 7, 2017

Forging relationships in DC can involve a certain amount of nuance - we trade business cards for friendship and flirt at receptions to find a date.  On this episode of DC Diary, we explore the dating scene and how we can meet and connect with other singles in the city.  Comedian and writer Jon Savitt and host Stephanie Logan come up with 5 tips to meet people in real life. And guest London tells the story of meeting her girlfriend (it involves a lot of cross-Atlantic travel).

S1 Ep.4: Where It Feels Like Home

October 3, 2017

When you live in DC, chances are most of your friends grew up somewhere else. And whether home is inside or outside the beltway, it seems like we're always missing somewhere. Our guests are from South Dakota, Colombia (by way of Virginia), Afghanistan (by way of New Mexico), and Washington, DC. Hear how homesickness affects each of them, despite their different backgrounds.

S1 Ep.1: Inside the Beltway

March 21, 2017

Hear from a consultant, Hill staffer, and former White House advisor on what it's really like in Washington, DC today. First hand, from the capital, here’s what it’s all about.

What you’ll hear on this show is stories that are told in one on one interviews and candid conversations from the recording booth at our DC Diary happy hour events. You won’t catch these kinds of stories on your nightly news, your morning update, or your newsfeed. Because this show isn’t about the politics or policy - it’s about people.
