This is the Radio Boston rundown for Jan. 13. Tiziana Dearing is our host.
- On Wednesday social workers and Boston employees removed the encampments in the so-called "Mass. and Cass" neighborhood. Boston Mayor Michelle Wu updated the city early Thursday, saying 154 people were placed in shelters and other alternate housing and that efforts continue to find shelter for those who remain unhoused. We speak with WBUR reporter Deborah Becker who has been following the situation at "Mass. and Cass" and was onsite during the clearing.
- Starting Saturday, people visiting certain Boston businesses will be required to provide proof of vaccination before entering. Boston Mayor Michelle Wu talks us through the policy and what it means the city's businesses.
- When Miami Dolphins head coach Brian Flores, former New England Patriots assistant coach, was fired this week, it raised eyebrows around the league. But according to one of our guests, Black coaches have long been held to a different standard than white coaches around the league. We discuss with Boston Globe columnist and reporter Gary Washburn and Howard Bryant, senior writer for ESPN and sports correspondent for NPR's Weekend Edition Saturday.
