Download Audio

This is the Radio Boston rundown for Jan. 28. Tiziana Dearing is our host.

  • On the off-chance you haven't heard already, there's a blizzard rolling into town tonight. We kick off the show with a brief update from meteorologist Dave Epstein.
  • Then it’s time for Week in Review, where we'll discuss Gov. Charlie Baker’s final State of the Commonwealth address and a range of infrastructural problems that continue to capture headlines across the region. We also take a look at the search for Boston’s new Police Commissioner, which is now gathering public input on what the community wants and needs from the person who will head the city’s police force. And finally, we review voting rights in Massachusetts, as the state legislature takes another look at ballot access in the Commonwealth. We cover these topics with our listeners and expert panelists: Adrian Walker, Metro columnist for The Boston Globe, and Andrew Lelling, former U.S. attorney under the Trump administration and current partner with the law firm Jones Day.

This program aired on January 28, 2022.
