This is the Radio Boston rundown for October 12. Tiziana Dearing is our host.

  • We get the latest from WBUR reporter Miriam Wasser on the potential of offshore wind here in New England.
  • Retired 4-star Army General Stanley McChrystal, now at Yale, joins us to talk about his new book, on lessons from Boston's early pandemic response, Afghanistan and 9/11 to better understand how we mitigate risk. His new book, coauthored with Anna Butrico, is "Risk: A User's Guide."
