We discuss the major news stories of the week with listener callers and our expert panel. We'll talk about surging coronavirus cases, and how schools and businesses have struggled to keep up. We'll also reflect on the Jan. 6 insurrection, one year later. And we'll look ahead to what 2022 may bring. This week, we're joined by Joe Battenfeld, political columnist for the Boston Herald, and Renée Graham, columnist and associate editor for the Boston Globe.

This program aired on January 7, 2022.
