Here's the Radio Boston rundown for Sep. 9. Tiziana Dearing is our host.

  • After being closed for the last 6 months, the MFA is finally ready to reopen on September 26th. The museum's plan includes safety protocols like social distancing measures and a mask requirement. But how will the museum answer the growing calls for better access and inclusion? And after laying off more than 100 employees this summer, how will the cultural institution deal with pressing economic concerns? We discuss with MFA Director Matthew Teitelbaum.
  • The Middlesex County District Attorney is re-examining the 2011 case of Framingham's Eurie Stamps, killed in his home by police during a raid. We talk about the case with Selvin Chambers, a friend of the Stamps family and Marian Ryan, Middlesex County District Attorney.
  • What do you do when roommates, friends or family don't agree on coronavirus safety measures or the risks? We take listener calls on the new rules of friendship and family during the umpteenth month of the pandemic with Kamille Washington, co-host of the culture podcast "Unfriendly Black Hotties," and Margaret Willison, a librarian and culture writer.

This program aired on September 9, 2020.
