Here's the Radio Boston rundown for Aug. 25. Tiziana Dearing is our host.

  • We check in with MBTA General Manager Steve Poftak, who is leading the public transportation agency in the midst of budget cuts, decreased ridership, and a public health crisis.
  • With two Boston teams roaring into the second round of their respective playoffs, we check the score with Radio Boston's Chris Citorik and Howard Bryant, senior writer for ESPN and sports correspondent for NPR's Weekend Edition Saturday.
  •  With thousands of students moving into Boston-area colleges this week and next, we take listener calls and discuss how to keep students and communities safe while supporting student learning with Kathy Spiegelman and Dr. David Hamer.
