Who's Allowed To Have Fun In Boston?Play
Here is the Radio Boston rundown for May 19. Tiziana Dearing is our host.
- The debate between residents around Franklin Park in Boston and young people on dirt bikes and ATVs is the latest in an age-old battle over who deserves space to have fun. We take listener calls with Boston City Councilor Julia Mejia, JP resident Dorothy Fennell and Boston scooter rider Yung Remy.
- Legal battles from the city of Boston to the Supreme Court could affect our future here in the Commonwealth. We'll get caught up on what's happening from retired federal judge and WBUR legal analyst Nancy Gertner.
- When we all went home and started living lives behind masks and screens, child advocates raised concerns that we’d miss important mental, developmental and behavioral health signals from kids. Did life in isolation, behind a mask, mean we missed key diagnoses? We ask two specialists.
