This is the Radio Boston rundown for Nov. 24. Tiziana Dearing is our host.

  • The U.S. Coast Guard continues searching for the Emmy Rose, a Maine-based groundfishing boat. Four fishermen are missing after the boat sank 20 miles off the coast of Provincetown. We get an update on the search.
  • We welcome back Jerald Walker, a Professor of Creative Writing at Emerson College. Walker's latest collection of essays, "How To Make A Slave," was a National Book Award Finalist, and tells stories of his life as a Black parent, teacher, writer, husband in America.
  • Food tells our history, and that history is passed down through the cooks in our own families. Those are the kinds of stories that Toni Tipton Martin hopes to bring to Boston and beyond, as the new editor-in-chief of Cook's Country, and the first person of color to lead an America's Test Kitchen publication.
  • As part of our "Living Through Corona" series, we catch up with Daphne Lopes. Having once stood in line to receive a free Thanksgiving turkey, Daphne now volunteers each year doing turkey distribution with Catholic Charities. We check in with her now, in a very different year.

This program aired on November 24, 2020.
