This is the Radio Boston rundown for March 15. Tiziana Dearing is our host.

  • Two local doctors at Brigham & Women's hospital have teamed up to create a series of videos, teaching Ukrainian civilians how to recognize a potentially lethal injury and how to stop the bleeding. Dr. Nelya Melnitchouk, a Ukrainian-American oncology surgeon, and emergency medicine physician Eric Goralnick are working with the Stop the Bleed initiative to help share this potentially life-saving information. We talk with the pair about their work and their connection to Ukraine.
  • We've talked to a number of folks over the last few weeks who have been impacted directly and indirectly by the war in Ukraine. Today, we continue those conversations, and check in with Mark Duffy, who operates the dairy farm Great Brook Farm in Carlisle, and sits on the board of Agri-Mark Family Dairy Farms, the co-op best known for making Cabot cheese. Duffy explains how first the pandemic and now the war have had serious impacts on the roughly 120 dairy farms in Massachusetts.
  • J. Kenji Lopez-Alt, food writer, blogger, and author of "The Wok: Recipes and Techniques" joins us to talk about some of his favorite wok recipes, how he still uses the wok he bought at Target in Somerville as a student at MIT, and how his Cambridge roots still influence his cooking today.

This program aired on March 15, 2022.
