This is the Radio Boston rundown for November 3. Tiziana Dearing is our host.
- It's the morning after the election and Michelle Wu is the city's new mayor. We unpack the race, its significance, and future implications with Massachusetts State Sen. Sonia Chang-Díaz and Michael Curry, President and CEO of the Massachusetts League of Community Health Centers.
- Boston was not the only city to elect a new mayor last night — voters in 55 Massachusetts cities and towns cast ballots, including in some critical mayoral races. Now, with most results in, it's not a cut-and-dry story. Some incumbents held their seats, others lost. Some communities voted in historic firsts, some repeated history. We turn to Lisa Kashinsky, reporter for POLITICO and author of the Massachusetts Playbook, to help us sort through it.
- The jazz world is yet another place where traditionally, only men have been welcomed with open arms. Even when a jazz performance features a woman on stage, she is often an island unto herself, surrounded by men. But one local jazz musician is working to change that. Terri Lyne Carrington, founder of the Berklee Institute of Jazz and Gender Justice, is the driving force behind a new program at Berklee, called The Next Jazz Legacy. The program will aim to mentor and nurture young women and non-binary jazz musicians, and its inaugural class will launch this winter.
