Getting Toned and Checking Your Phone With Ben Freed

Washingtonian staff writer Ben Freed shares his afternoon workout and phone-checking time with the world. In this episode: A tweet from Peter W. Singer, an Instagram post from @councilgram, a Facebook post from WAMU, and a video of a kangaroo with a watering can stuck on its head.

*Please note: This feature, which was suggested by Washingtonian editorial fellow Noah Weiland, drew no inspiration whatsoever from “Breathing and Briefing With Mark Halperin.”

UPDATE: On our editor’s advice we are embedding the Halperin video to prove there’s no connection.
