This is the rundown for Radio Boston on May 17. Tiziana Dearing is our host.

  • Baby formula was out of stock in 43% of Massachusetts stores in the first week of May, according to Datasembly, a data analytics firm. We speak with a Newton nonprofit about how it is providing donor human milk to hospitals and WBUR's Meghan Kelly on the impact of this shortage.
  • Kendall Square is considered by many to be the world's most innovative square kilometer with companies like MIT, NASA, Google, and Biogen calling the square home. The history of these companies, and their role in the ecosystem of Kendall Square, are the subject of a new book called "Where Futures Converge: Kendall Square and the making of a global innovation hub." We speak with the author, Robert Buderi.
  • One of the most popular classes at Suffolk University Law School is on mass incarceration: how it happens, why it happens, and how to stop it in the future. Suffolk professor Stephen Cody shares how he teaches the next generation of Massachusetts prosecutors, judges and public defenders.

This program aired on May 17, 2022.
