Here is the Radio Boston rundown for July 14. Tiziana Dearing is our host.

  • Hunger is down in Boston but has become so bad in Cuba that protests have spilled over into the streets — leading to the largest popular uprising there in decades. We hear local reactions from WBUR's Simón Rios, and then speak with Congressman Jim McGovern about Cuba policy and his campaign to End Hunger Now.
  • Offshore wind projects are poised to launch an entirely new industry in Massachusetts, potentially creating thousands of new jobs and billions of dollars in revenue. Joining us to talk about how climate change, money, and power all fit into the equation are Annie Ropeik, a climate, energy, and environment reporter at NHPR and co-host of the Windfall podcast, and Elizabeth Turnbull Henry, President of the Environmental League of Massachusetts.
  • Pandemic restrictions are easing, people are getting vaccinated and life seems to be returning to normal. But "normal" may not look like it did before the pandemic. We take listener calls about how people's lives have changed, in big and small ways, as a result of the pandemic with Bethany Van Delft, host of The Ten News and Artisanal Comedy, and co-host of "Parentalogic" on PBS, and Beth Teitell, features reporter with the Boston Globe. 

This program aired on July 14, 2021.
