Here's the Radio Boston rundown for Thursday, Oct. 8. Tiziana Dearing is our host.

  • Bena Apreala was stopped and questioned by ICE officers while out jogging in West Roxbury on Tuesday. He filmed the encounter. The stop has been condemned as a clear example of racial profiling by a number of Massachusetts elected officials. We get the latest from WBUR's Shannon Dooling.
  • We hear local analysis and take listener calls on last night's Vice Presidential Debate with Ira Stoll, Boston-based editor of the FutureofCapitalism.com and Rev. Mariama White-Hammond, pastor at the New Roots AME Church in Dorchester.
  • As part of our ongoing series of interviews about life during the pandemic, we speak with Elizabeth Davis, a home caregiver who works in Springfield, Greenfield and Amherst, and has been doing this work for 35 years. She says the last seven months have been exhausting, but for the sake of her clients, she carries on.

This program aired on October 8, 2020.
