Here is the Radio Boston rundown for April 21. Tiziana Dearing is our host.

  • As New Hampshire lifts its mask mandate, and we think about the looser restrictions in other states, we consider the question: did the restrictions here work, and did they actually save lives? We ask Dr. Ashish Jha, health policy researcher and Dean of the Brown University School of Public Health.
  • Former Boston City Councilor Tito Jackson and his birth mother, Rachel Twymon, recently reunited. They tell us their painful and joyful story of finding each other.
  • With the Oscars set for this Sunday, we talk all things popcorn with local chef and culinary instructor Joe Gatto, host of "From Scratch" on Pluto TV.

This program aired on April 22, 2021.
