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

Our Week In Review panel breaks down what a presidential effort to hinder mail-in voting may mean for Massachusetts, and the growing tension as parents, teachers, and administrators grapple over whether to reopen schools for in-person classes. Also, we touch in on the presidential election after Kamala Harris makes history as the first Black woman and first Asian American vice-presidential candidate for a major party.

Our panelists are Renee Landers, professor of Law and Director of the Health Law Concentration at Suffolk University, and Ed Lyons, Massachusetts Republican activist and political writer.

This program aired on August 14, 2020.
