Here's the Radio Boston rundown for Sep. 3. Tiziana Dearing is our host.

  • The city of Lawrence now has an unemployment rate above 30 percent and is a high-risk community for the coronavirus. How can Lawrence harness its strengths to respond to the current crisis? We speak with Lawrence Mayor Dan Rivera and two civic leaders at a food pantry and an employment office.
  • For nearly 140 years, a seaside mission has offered ship workers small comforts and spiritual support. Radio Boston's Walter Wuthmann brings us their story.
  • With the Celtics in full control against the Toronto Raptors, and the Bruins' season over, we Check the Score with Radio Boston's Chris Citorik.
  • We speak with Margaret Atwood, the best-selling author of "The Handmaid's Tale." Her new book is "The Testaments." Both dystopian-future novels center around a theocratic totalitarian regime, which overthrew the United States government and set up their power center in Massachusetts.

This program aired on September 3, 2020.
