Here's the Radio Boston rundown for May 14. Tiziana Dearing is our host.

  • How does contact tracing work? We ask John Welch, the director of partnerships & operations for Massachusetts' COVID-19 response at Partners In Health.
  • We talk with Pine Manor College President Thomas O'Reilly about Pine Manor and Boston College's new "educational partnership." The agreement will allow BC to take on all of Pine Manor's assets and liabilities, with Pine Manor students being "taught out" over the next two years.
  • As we near two months of staying at home, Boston Globe film critic Ty Burr reflects on some of the great movies about being stuck at home. 

This program aired on May 14, 2020.
