Here's the Radio Boston rundown for Sep. 17. Tiziana Dearing is our host.

  • Six new cities and towns were added to Massachusetts' list of communities considered "high risk" for coronavirus infections. We look at what's driving up the risk assessment in some communities with local leaders and a local doctor.
  • As the first part of our new series, Living Through Corona, we spotlight Robert Lewis, Jr., head of the Roxbury nonprofit The BASE, to hear about his experience surviving the virus and how he's been coping with the anxiety, fear, stress and isolation that we've all felt the last six months.
  • Hidden Sacred Spaces: the Cable Synagogue at Hebrew SeniorLife rehabilitation center in Roslindale now sits silent, shuttered by the coronavirus pandemic that has ravaged senior homes in Massachusetts and across the country. Before that, though, residents, staff and family members used to gather for a very different kind of music service. We take you there as part of our audio-visual series on Boston's Hidden Sacred Spaces.

This program aired on September 17, 2020.
