1. Stranger Things Ben Standig 1:19:47

The Athletic’s Ben Standig dives into a new week tackling Commanders’ questions and stadium conundrums with Nicki Jhabvala (Washington Post) and Eric Flack (WUSA).

After some brief opening remarks, Ben welcomes Nicki back to the pod for a series of questions themed around Ben watching “Stranger Things” and “Top Gun: Maverick” over the weekend. Stranger if Carson Wentz is a one-and-done with Washington or stays past 2023? Who becomes Terry McLaurin’s wingman this season? You get the gist. Curtis Samuel, Jack Del Rio and others discussed.

Then Ben and Eric discuss this week’s vote in the Virginia House of Delegates on a stadium funding bill (46:01). Three months ago the legislation had widespread support. Now the financial terms have shrunk and there are real concerns over the passage at any figure. They also get into the latest with Maryland and the District.
