Here is the Radio Boston rundown for April 27. Tiziana Dearing is our host.
- Congresswoman Ayanna Pressley has redoubled her calls for police reform in the wake of last week's guilty verdict in the trial of Derek Chauvin for the murder of George Floyd. We catch up with her on policing and the latest in pandemic relief.
