Here is the Radio Boston rundown for February 2. Tiziana Dearing is our host.

  • Democrats look to fast track a pandemic relief bill, while GOP senators propose a bill of their own. All this while the second impeachment trial of former President Donald Trump is slated to begin next week. We catch up with Congressman Stephen Lynch to get the latest from Washington.
  • After a one day snow delay, a mass-vaccination site opens at the Reggie Lewis Track and Athletic Center in Roxbury. The site is expected to administer about one thousand vaccinations per week. Joining us to discuss what this site means for the city is the President of Roxbury Community College, Valerie Roberson.
  • We discuss Massachusetts vaccine rollout during another week of "Ask the Docs." To answer you're questions, we're joined by Dr. Shira Doron, an infectious disease physician and hospital epidemiologist at Tufts Medical Center, and Lenny Marcus, Founding Co-Director of the National Preparedness Leadership Initiative, a joint program of the Harvard Chan School of Public Health and the Kennedy School of Government.
  • "Cato & Dolly: A New American Play” puts a unique spin on the story of John Hancock, celebrating the people in his household who played a major role behind the scenes in the formation of the U.S. WBUR's Jamie Bologna speaks with playwright Patrick Gabridge, the producing artistic director of "Plays In Place," a theatre company focused on site-specific productions.
