Here's the Radio Boston rundown for May 13. Tiziana Dearing is our host.

  • We check in with WBUR's Steve Brown on the latest moves by Gov. Baker to re-open the economy, and how the state legislature is responding.

  • As schools remain closed for the rest of the academic year, we dig into one of the biggest questions around what reopening will look like: child care.

  • Face coverings are everywhere, sweatpants are the new chinos, and women have abandoned their high heels — and their hair highlights — as society has shut down. What can our fashion reveal about us in this cultural moment?

This program aired on May 13, 2020.
