Here is the Radio Boston rundown for Nov. 11. Tiziana Dearing is our host.

  • This Veterans' Day, we check in with Massachusetts Rep. Seth Moulton, a former U.S. Marine who served four tours in Iraq. We discuss how the pandemic has affected veteran services and support, as well as President Trump's refusal to concede to President-elect Joe Biden.
  • One million people are struggling to get enough to eat in Massachusetts, according to Feeding America, a national nonprofit and network of over 200 food banks. The pandemic has exacerbated all aspects of hunger in the region, from the need to the logistics of meeting that need around the state. We get an on-the-ground look at the issue, and talk federal policy with the heads of two local food banks and Rep. Jim McGovern.
  • 400 years ago today, on Nov. 11, 1620, the Mayflower anchored in what is today Provincetown Harbor. Some of this year's formal celebrations seek to put the native tribes and nations that those settlers encountered and displaced at the center of the story, after centuries of marginalization. Today, we engage with the history and present day of the Wampanoag people by turning to Hartman Deetz, a cultural resource monitor for the Mashpee Wampanoag tribe, and an activist and historian.

This program aired on November 11, 2020.
