This is the Radio Boston rundown for Dec. 15. Tiziana Dearing is our host.

    • We talk with Massachusetts Congressman Seth Moulton about the local impacts of President Biden's "Build Back Better" agenda, the latest COVID updates, and a report back from his fact-finding mission at the Ukraine border. Plus, we discuss the implications of the attack on the capital, as the Jan. 6 anniversary approaches.
    • Following up on the implications of the Jan. 6 attack, we speak with Andrew Lelling, former U.S. attorney under the Trump administration, and currently a partner with the law firm Jones Day. Now, as the congressional investigation unfolds, we ask: Have we adequately handled the aftermath of that day? We also hear his thoughts on the current state of the Massachusetts GOP, Rachael Rollins' recent appointment as the next U.S. attorney for Massachusetts, and more.
    • Do you like to chat with strangers on your morning commute, or does that sound like a nightmare? In an interview with POLITICO's Lisa Kashinsky, Boston Mayor Michelle Wu said that the T should be a "civic space for community conversations" and that right now, it's too quiet. Some folks had a strong reaction. We take listener calls to see how the city's T riders feel, and talk with Quiana Agbai, a writer at the blog Harlem Lovebirds, and Joe Keohane, a Boston-born journalist and author of the book, "The Power of Strangers: The Benefits of Connecting in a Suspicious World."

This program aired on December 15, 2021.
