This is the Radio Boston rundown for September 15th. Tiziana Dearing is our host.
- It's official: the next mayor of Boston will be either City Councilor Michelle Wu or City Councilor Annissa Essaibi George. Now that the field has been cut down to two, what will the general election look like? And what do these results tell us about our city? We unpack last night's election with WBUR Senior Political Reporter Anthony Brooks and Boston Globe Reporter Meghan Irons.
- Boston wasn't the only city tallying ballots last night. Cities and towns from Lynn to Somerville to Framingham to Gloucester had mayoral and other elections taking place. We take stock of where the rest of these races fell with Lisa Kashinsky, Politico reporter and author of the Massachusetts Playbook.
- Is Boston the most racist city in the country? Many out-of-state sports stars and comics think so and they like to talk about it … a lot. In a recent feature for Boston Magazine, reporter Dart Adams argues that when it comes to this debate, we're often leaving out the voices who we most need to hear from: Black and brown residents. Dart Adams joins us to discuss as we take listener calls.
