Here is the Radio Boston rundown for Oct. 27. Tiziana Dearing is our host.

  • Attorney Kevin O'Connor is running for the U.S. Senate as the Republican candidate, challenging sitting Senator Ed Markey. We catch up with O'Connor about the state of the race with a week to go until election day.
  • With more than a thousand new coronavirus cases a day now in Massachusetts, we speak with a doctor about what the uptick means, and what to do about it.
  • With Election Day just a week away, we're taking some time this week to look at some of the major issues facing the country, and what's at stake in this election.  For this first discussion, we're looking at early education and childcare.
  • While Black actors have always had roles in horror films, the success of 2017's "Get Out" ushered in a new error of Black Horror, that's continued into the 2020s. We talk about the art of Black Horror with Kyéra Sterling, an independent academic who is teaching a class on Black Horror at the Coolidge Corner Theatre.

This program aired on October 27, 2020.
