Here's the Radio Boston rundown for May 28. Tiziana Dearing is our host.

  • Five men were shot at the Franklin Field development in Dorchester Wednesday night. One died. There were other violent incidents on Wednesday. Talia Rivera, director of Street Outreach, Advocacy and Response for the city of Boston, joins us to talk about the violence and what we can do to address it.
  • The nonprofit Feeding America predicts that 1 in 8 people in Eastern Massachusetts will experience food insecurity this year due to the coronavirus crisis. When it comes to children, that number increases to 1 in 6. Catherine D'Amato, CEO of the Greater Boston Food Bank, joins us to talk about the scope of the problem and what it means for Massachusetts.
  • As we approach the final six months of the 2020 campaign, a number of states are looking at mail-in voting, including Massachusetts. Is mail-in voting a good idea for Massachusetts? We take listener calls, and hear from two advocates.
  • The September re-scheduled Boston Marathon has been canceled, the first time in the race's 124-year history. WBUR's Alex Ashlock tells us more.

This program aired on May 28, 2020.
