Here is the Radio Boston rundown for April 8. Tiziana Dearing is our host.

  • A business called Stem, which holds an economic empowerment marijuana license, is suing the city of Haverhill over a set of fees that have proven deeply controversial in the process of licensing pot businesses: host community agreements. We speak with Caroline Pineau, founder and owner of Stem in Haverhill and WBUR reporter Zeninjor Enwemeka.
  • We're joined by Boston Globe columnist Scott Kirsner, author of "Innovation Economy: True Stories of Start-Ups, Flame-Outs, and Inventing the Future in New England."
  • This week, the City of Boston launched All Inclusive Boston, a $2.5 million tourism campaign focused on counteracting Boston's image, and attracting tourists based on the full diversity of who we are and where we live. We speak with Colette Philips, a co-developer of the city's campaign, president and CEO of Colette Phillips Communications and Founder of Get Konnected.

This program aired on April 8, 2021.
