Host Tiziana Dearing speaks with WBUR's Jerome Campbell about the two aides Boston Mayor Marty Walsh's administration who were found guilty of federal conspiracy charges in the Boston Calling extortion case. Plus, we reflect on Nobel Laureate Toni Morrison, who died Monday in New York with writers Jabari Asim and Jeneé Osterheldt. Also, author William McKeever argues that we misunderstand sharks, that they're not the terrifying man-eating killers, but essential parts of our fragile ocean ecosystem who need our protection.
