Here's the Radio Boston rundown for Sep. 23. Tiziana Dearing is our host.

  • The body of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was placed in repose today at the United States Supreme Court. Her death has sparked an outpouring of emotion and respect for her legacy, and also a fierce standoff over who will appoint her successor. We speak to WBUR senior political reporter Anthony Brooks about the political fight, nationally and locally.
  • We've already seen how just one large party or gathering can spread the coronavirus. But six months into the isolation of pandemic life, how can we fulfill our social needs while still protecting ourselves and each other from the pandemic? We take listener calls with Dr. Shira Doron, an infectious disease physician and hospital epidemiologist at Tufts Medical Center, and Boston Globe reporter Beth Teitell.
  • With so many of us spending more time at home — and pandemic gardens in bloom — here's a shortage of jars and lids. We discuss pickling, jamming and preserving and take listener calls with Travis Grillo, the owner of Boston-based Grillo's Pickles and Julia Hallman, lead buyer at Formaggio Kitchen, where she teaches about canning, jamming and pickles.

This program aired on September 23, 2020.
