FOX Nation host Abby Hornacek takes a closer look at the topics and buzz words you find your friends and coworkers using to sound intelligent. Each week Abby and her expert guests will tackle topics we take for granted and help to explain the roots and meanings behind them.

This week John Hudak, Deputy Director for the Center for Effective Public Management and Senior Fellow of Governance Studies at the Brookings Institution joins Abby in the classroom to help with her lesson plan. John discusses the history of how our nation's capital came to be, its place in our country's landscape, and the continued debate around Washington D.C.'s status as a non-state.
