Here is the Radio Boston rundown for March 23. Tiziana Dearing is our host.

  • Suffolk District Attorney Rachael Rollins announced yesterday that she plans to drop tens of thousands of criminal cases that had evidence processed in the state's scandal-plagued drug lab, expanding what is already the largest forensics audit in US history. We discuss with WBUR senior correspondent Deborah Becker.
  • For the first time in almost two hundred years, Boston has a mayor that is not a white man. Former Boston City Council President Kim Janey was sworn in after former Mayor Marty Walsh was confirmed as the new U.S. Secretary of Labor. We talk about what to expect from Mayor Janey with Tito Jackson, former Boston City Councilor, mayoral candidate in 2017, and now CEO of Verdant Medical, a cannabis company.
  • So much has changed for all of us over the past year. We take listener calls and discuss how we're navigating relationships with romantic partners, friends, and family members. We also take a look at how the pandemic has changed our relationship with ourselves. We discuss with Meredith Goldstein, columnist for the Boston Globe's Love Letters advice column and podcast, and Bethany Van Delft, the host of The Ten News and Artisanal Comedy, and co-host of PARENTLOGIC on Nova/PBS.
