This is the Radio Boston rundown for September 8. Tiziana Dearing is our host.

  • As we approach the 20th anniversary of 9/11, we talk with Massachusetts Congressman Jake Auchincloss about how he remembers that day, how it played into his decision to join the Marines, and how he's thinking about it now that the ensuing 20-year war in Afghanistan has ended.
  • Did you know that trees provide more than just shade? We learn more about how beneficial trees are for battling climate change and improving your health with WBUR's Martha Bebinger and Peter James, assistant professor in the department of environmental health at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health.
  • We revisit a conversation with Mehmet Ali Sanlikol, Grammy-nominated musician, composer, and faculty member at the New England Conservatory. Sanlikol talks with us about his new album, "An Elegant Ritual," and the value of speaking multiple musical languages.

This program aired on September 8, 2021.
