Welcome to the pre-inaugural edition of The Washington Mall, my new column at Puck. As some of you may know, I’ll be covering the inside conversation coursing through Washington every week—what people are really talking about in the White House, on the Hill, on K Street, and within the media. You can also sign up to receive this column in your inbox every Thursday evening. Soon enough, I’ll be starting a second edition on Monday nights, too. 

I’m thrilled to begin writing and reporting this column for a number of reasons. As we head toward the midterms, there are so many storylines that intrigue me personally, and also, curiously, appear undercovered. In the coming weeks, I’ll be writing about a number of these topics, many of which D.C. insiders are chewing over privately—which is usually how a kernel of news blossoms in a town that is professionally obsessed with messaging and communication.
