Here is Radio Boston rundown for May 7. Tiziana Dearing is our host.

We review the major news stories of the week, highlighting major institutional failures, and also some potential promises for a better future. The failures have been costly, as we'll discuss in regards to the death of 16-year-old Mikayla Miller and 14-year-old David Almond. But despite our nation's experts now predicting we will also fail to reach herd immunity, there are promising signs that we are reaching a real turning point in the pandemic. Massachusetts will now offer walk-up vaccination appointments at six mass vaccination sites, and the outdoor mask mandate is no more.

We'll discuss it all and take listener calls with Wilnelia Rivera, democratic strategist and founder of Rivera Consulting, and Jim Stergios, executive director of the Pioneer Institute.

This program aired on May 7, 2021.
