Here is the Radio Boston rundown for Feb. 15. Tiziana Dearing is our host.

  • We discuss the impeachment trial of former President Donald Trump, and what's next on the agenda for a Democratic Congress and President Joe Biden, with Massachusetts Congressman Jake Auchincloss.
  • On this Presidents Day, many are considering the state of the presidency, after the Senate acquitted former President Donald Trump over the weekend on a charge of incitement of insurrection. Seven Republican senators voted to convict, but there were more surprises in the speeches made after the vote than in the vote itself. We discuss, and take listener calls, with David Gergen, advisor to Presidents Nixon, Ford, Reagan and Clinton and founding director of the Center for Public Leadership at the Harvard Kennedy School, and Kellie Carter Jackson, assistant professor of Africana Studies at Wellesley College.
  • If you've ever paused to look at the Ruggles MBTA station, Roxbury Community College, the Boston Police Headquarters, or the Harriet Tubman House before it was demolished, you've been affected by the work of Donald Stull and his teams of architects. Stull was a true pioneer in the world of architecture, founding two firms owned and run by Black architects. Stull passed away late last year. To recognize his life and legacy, we caught up with his friend and partner M. David Lee. Lee worked at Stull and Associates, and then co-founded Stull and Lee, with Donald Stull.

This program aired on February 15, 2021.
