Here's the Radio Boston rundown for Feb. 19. Callum Borchers is our host.

  • Sen. Ed Markey and challenger Rep. Joe Kennedy III sparred over Trump, policy, and incumbency during the first debate of a contentious Democratic primary .
  • To recline or not to recline? This seemingly small question now feels urgent and polarizing, ever since a viral video showed a man on an American Airlines flight punching the back of a seat that a woman in front of him had tilted back.
  • Scientist Brian Greene on using science to understand big ideas — like whether physics may hold the key to understanding human life — and why it matters.

This program aired on February 19, 2020.
