Here is the Radio Boston rundown for March 3. Tiziana Dearing is our host.
- As the state pushes schools to return students to an in-person learning model, Governor Charlie Baker has announced that teachers will be able to make COVID vaccine appointments as of Thursday, March 11th. We get the latest from WBUR's Carrie Jung, take listener calls, and hear reactions from Almi Abeyta, Superintendent of Chelsea Public Schools, and Takeru Nagayoshi, English and research teacher at New Bedford High School, 2020 Massachusetts Teacher of the Year.
- Susan Cattaneo, along with her band mate Renee Dupuis, joined us in our studio at the end of 2019 to play some music. We're revisiting the conversation we had with Cattaneo that day as part of our coverage for Women's History Month. Cattaneo believes in making space for women musicians, and back then, she was part of a female-fronted residency at Union Tavern in Somerville. When she came to WBUR, Cattaneo told us why she thought more space for female musicians is important here.
- Massachusetts Sen. Ed Markey joins us to discuss Democrats' efforts to pass a COVID relief bill, the debate over a proposed minimum wage increase, his co-sponsorship of the Ultra-Millionaire Tax Act, and other legislative priorities he hopes Democrats will focus on early in the Biden administration.
