This is the Radio Boston rundown for Feb. 11. Tiziana Dearing is our host.

  • It’s Friday, which means it’s time for our Week in Review. It was an eventful week for education, from Governor Baker ending the mask mandate for Massachusetts schools, to the resignation of BPS Superintendent Brenda Cassellius, to the controversy taking place at Harvard over a sexual harassment lawsuit brought against renowned anthropology professor John Comaroff. We’ll also talk about big moves in Boston’s transit world, as Mayor Michelle Wu announced that three bus routes in the city will be fare-free for two years starting in March. Additionally, the Baker administration says about 500,000 low-income Massachusetts workers will soon receive the first round of one-time payments of $500. We will discuss all of these topics and more with our listener callers and expert panelists: Richard Tisei, former Republican leader of the Massachusetts State Senate and a former Republican candidate for Congress, and media analyst John Carroll.
  • And to top off the hour – have you hit a pothole recently? Wondering how bad it is for your car? Ray Magliozzi, former co-host of Car Talk, joins us to talk bad road conditions and the toll they take on our vehicles.
