This is the rundown for Radio Boston, for May 13. Tiziana Dearing is our host.

  • We'll break down and review the story of the week. This week it's transportation. It's been a rough go for the T since the tragic Red Line accident last month, news that the Federal Transit Administration is investigating safety concerns at the T, and even some serious financial trouble.
  • It seems like a great time to get outdoors, and what better way to bask in the beautiful weather ahead of us than to get out in nature and go for a hike? We talk with two outdoors and hiking enthusiasts to hear about the best places to get our walk on this weekend.
  • Massachusetts is the third most densely populated state for black bears with more than 5,000 of them, and their numbers are steadily growing and expanding to the west.
  • Sometimes, we're so focused on getting through the week that you don't make any plans for the weekend. We have you covered with a preview of interesting things to get up to around the state.
