This is the Radio Boston rundown for Jan. 10. Tiziana Dearing is our host.

  • We spend most of the show today looking at how the omicron variant is affecting some of our most vulnerable populations. First, we're joined by WBUR reporter Deborah Becker, who has been following this story. Then, we'll hear from Lou Woolf, President and CEO of Hebrew Senior Life, about how the variant has impacted senior housing. We'll also hear from Elizabeth Matos, Executive Director of Prisoners' Legal Services and Andrew Benedetti, Chief Counsel of the Committee for Public Counsel Services, the state agency responsible for providing legal services for those who can't afford it or who have a constitutional right to have it, about how omicron has impacted prisons and jury trials.
  • With temperatures set to plummet overnight, and single digits in the forecast, we warm up with a hot bowl of soup and take listener calls with Bryan Roof, executive food editor for Cook's Country magazine and an on-screen test cook for Cook's Country.

This program aired on January 10, 2022.
