This is the Radio Boston rundown for Feb. 4. Anthony Brooks is our host.

  • Quentin Palfrey, attorney and former candidate for Lieutenant Governor, has entered the race to be Massachusetts' next Attorney General. Palfrey joins former Boston City Councilor and mayoral candidate Andrea Campbell, and labor attorney and former candidate for U.S. Senate, Shannon Liss-Riordan in the race. All three candidates will appear on the show, and today we start with Quentin Palfrey.
  • Then it's time for Week in Review, where we talk about the race to replace Maura Healey as the state's next Attorney General, ongoing protests aimed at Boston Mayor Michelle Wu, and new guidance from the state calling on colleges and universities to roll back some of their COVID safety protocols. Plus, there's been a week of headlines for the NFL, including Tom Brady's retirement, and a lawsuit brought by a former head coach over alleged discriminatory hiring practices. We take listener calls with our expert panelists: Arline Isaacson, co-chair of the Massachusetts Gay and Lesbian Political Caucus and president of Isaacson Political Consulting; and Tom Nichols, professor of national security affairs at the U.S. Naval War College in Newport, Rhode Island and a contributing writer at The Atlantic.

This program aired on February 4, 2022.
