Host Tiziana Dearing continues our conversation about food insecurity in light of the recent proposed cuts to the SNAP program — often referred to as food stamps — by the US Department of Agriculture. Plus, what do the JFK Library, online dating company OkCupid, a local poetry nonprofit and a book called "White Fragility" have in common? They've all had advertisements rejected by the MBTA. What does the T find so offensive about these ads? Also, author Nick Trout's new novel takes inspiration from his experience parenting a child with cystic fibrosis.
