Here is the Radio Boston rundown for Sept. 29. Tiziana Dearing is our host.

  • The names of 136 law enforcement officers appear on a list of potential prosecutorial witnesses with credibility issues, assembled by Suffolk County District Attorney Rachael Rollins’ office and released late Friday night. We discuss how Rollins created the list, and how it will be used going forward.
  • Tonight, President Donald Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden take the debate stage for the first time in Cleveland. We look ahead and take listener calls with WBUR's Anthony Brooks and Stephanie Murray, author of the Politico Massachusetts Playbook and co-host of The Horse Race podcast.
  • In 2014, thousands of employees of local grocery store chain Market Basket walked off the job — rallying outside of the store's headquarters in Tewksbury, in support of their fired-CEO, Arthur T. Demoulas. The 40-day strike was a profound act of democracy and collective action that made a difference. We speak with local writer Eric Giroux's, whose first novel, "Ring On Deli," was inspired by that historic moment.

This program aired on September 29, 2020.
