This is the Radio Boston rundown for December 9. Tiziana Dearing is our host.
- Marty Martinez, who has served as Boston's Chief of Health and Human Services under three mayors, is stepping down at the end of the week. We talk with Martinez about his role in helping the city navigate the ongoing pandemic, and what he sees as the biggest challenges moving forward.
- In August, after the Taliban took control of Afghanistan, the world watched as thousands struggled to flee the country. Hundreds of those families ended up heading for the United States. Now that they have had some time to settle in, we wanted to check in on how that process has gone. We talk with one woman whose family, originally from Kabul, has been resettled in New Bedford, Massachusetts, to get a sense of what that journey was like for them. Later, we hear from a representative of the International Institute of New England, an organization that has been helping with the resettling process.
- From a cloistered childhood spent in Saudi Arabia, to the inner circle of the Clinton White House and then Hillary Clinton's campaigns, to her tumultuous, very public and humiliating relationship with her ex-husband, former New York Democratic Representative Anthony Weiner, Huma Abedin has lived quite an eventful life. She sat down with Radio Boston host Tiziana Dearing for a special WBUR CitySpace event this week, and we bring you part of that conversation.
