Download Audio

We review some of the major news stories of the week with our expert panel and listener callers. We talk about the race to replace Maura Healey as the state's next Attorney General, ongoing protests aimed at Boston Mayor Michelle Wu, new guidance from the state calling on colleges and universities to roll back some of their COVID safety protocol, and 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. This week, we're joined by 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.
