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

  • Boston College and the City of Newton are at odds after news last week that cases among BC students have spiked. Could what appears to be an "I told you so," moment for critics of universities reopening also become a blueprint for successful town and gown relations during the coronavirus? We discuss with WBUR's Max Larkin and Boston College spokesman Jack Dunn.
  • Chief Justice Ralph Gants of Massachusetts' Supreme Judicial Court died Monday at the age of 65. He suffered a heart attack earlier this month. We get reaction from WBUR legal analyst Nancy Gertner, who knew Gants professionally and personally.
  • It's the dawning of not one, but two new eras for Boston sports fans. We break down our first look at the "new" New England Patriots, and preview the Celtics' Eastern Conference Finals match-up against the Miami Heat with Radio Boston's Chris Citorik.
  • A global team of scientists – including from MIT – have found what MAY be signs of life on our neighboring planet, Venus. The findings are just out today in a pair of papers. We hear from their authors, Clara Sousa-Silva and Janusz Petkowski, and turn to MIT Professor Marcia Bartusiak for reaction.
