Here's the Radio Boston rundown for Feb. 6. Tiziana Dearing is our host.

  • WBUR's Chris Citorik joins us from New Hampshire for Sen. Bernie Sanders's announcement claiming victory in the Iowa caucuses.
  • Educators with the Boston Teacher's Union are organizing for racial justice as part of a nationwide effort called Black Lives Matter at School. But some local law enforcement have taken issue with the effort, calling Black Lives Matter an anti-police organization. We dig into the controversy.
  • Michael Tougias tells the story of an ordinary winter rescue mission that got lost at sea in "Into The Blizzard: Heroism At Sea During The Great Blizzard of 1978."
  • State Sen. Diana DiZoglio breaks down what happened to her bill, which would ban NDA's for issues of sexual harassment, which was tabled Wednesday.

Correction: The audio attached to this post has been updated to remove an incomplete description of a change to New Hampshire's voting law. The headline was also changed to reflect that it is members of the Boston Teachers Union that are organizing the 'Black Live Matters' curriculum.

This program aired on February 6, 2020.
