Here's the Radio Boston rundown for Jan. 19. Tiziana Dearing is our host.

  • On Sunday, officials confirmed the first case of a new variant of COVID here in Massachusetts. The new variant is believed to be much more contagious, with some studies suggesting it could increase the likelihood of transmission by as much as 50 percent. We talk about the consequence with local doctors.
  • U.S. Attorney Andrew Lelling talks with us about people from Massachusetts arrested in connection with the Capitol riots and what's next for him.
  • Yale philosophy professor Jason Stanley was on Radio Boston two weeks after Donald Trump's inauguration in 2017. He was speaking about the authoritarian threats he perceived then to our democratic republic. In the waning hours of the Trump administration, we bring him back to talk about what happened next, and where we go from here.

This program aired on January 19, 2021.
