Here is the Radio Boston rundown for June 16. Tiziana Dearing is our host.

  • Cyber attacks are making headlines both nationally and here in the Commonwealth. Last week the Massachusetts Steamship Authority was the target of a cyber attack that brought down its website, causing ferry delays, and today The University of Massachusetts Lowell is canceling its classes while the university investigates a possible cyber security breach. Joining us to discuss how cyber attacks are impacting the Commonwealth is Hiawatha Bray, a technology columnist for The Boston Globe. 
  • As states continue to lift coronavirus restrictions, the Delta variant first reported in India is now making up 10 percent of all reported cases in the US. Joining us to answer our questions on viruses, vaccines, and variants are Dr. Shira Doron, infectious disease physician and hospital epidemiologist at Tufts Medical Center, and Dr. Sabrina Assoumou, an Assistant Professor of Medicine at Boston University School of Medicine and an attending physician of Infectious Diseases at Boston Medical Center.
  • How do billionaires ensure they maximize their ability to maintain their wealth and influence while minimizing their taxes and liabilities? Enter the Wealth Defense Industry, a cadre of tax attorneys, accountants, and wealth managers paid millions to manage the wealth of the richest .01%. Joining us to discuss his book, The Wealth Hoarders: How Billionaires Pay Millions to Hide Trillions, is Chuck Collins, a senior scholar at the Institute for Policy Studies in Washington, DC.
