"Radio Towers!" Roadkill leads Half Full on a tour of the Bethesda neighborhood where four antennas stand, each 400 feet high, in the corner between the I-495 Capital Beltway and the I-270 spur. Since 1941 they broadcast the WMAL-AM signal. They were decommissioned a few years ago and in June 2020 the land was sold for $74 million to become a housing development. Meanwhile the duo finds a couple of new cut-throughs, at the Stratton Local Park and Ashburton Elementary School. "Andrà tutto bene" = "Everything will be fine" reassures an optimistic Italian sign on a nearby home.
