Here is the Radio Boston rundown for July 23, 2021. Tiziana Dearing is our host.

  • We take a look at this week's major stories in our Week In Review, including  a troubling rise in COVID cases, controversy in the Massachusetts GOP, and the push to legalize sports betting in Massachusetts. Joining us for the discussion are Tito Jackson, former Boston city councilor, and Jennifer Nassour, former chairwoman of the Massachusetts GOP.
  • It's the first day of the Olympics, and some of the world's greatest athletes have gathered in Tokyo to compete. But not everyone is excited — protestors have also gathered on the streets over concerns about COVID, with some major US athletes already being benched after contracting the virus. We check in with Gary Washburn, a Boston Globe reporter who's on the ground in Tokyo.

This program aired on July 23, 2021.
