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

It was a week when worlds collided: race, politics, the pandemic and sports. Our Week In Review breaks down the Republican National Convention, local reaction to the shooting in Wisconsin and the NBA's response, and local politics.

Our panelists are Renee Graham, Boston Globe columnist and WBUR Contributor, and Tom Nichols, a professor of national security affairs at the U.S. Naval War College in Newport, Rhode Island, and the Harvard Extension School. He's also a senior advisor to The Lincoln Project.

This program aired on August 28, 2020.
