This is the Radio Boston rundown for June 9. Tiziana Dearing is our host.

  • New data from the Greater Boston Food Bank reports that one in three people in Massachusetts experienced food insecurity in the last year, as inflation is up and pandemic relief programs are set to expire. We speak with the heads of two anti-hunger organizations, the Greater Boston Food Bank and Project Bread, on their efforts to connect people to reliable food sources.
  • From how to water tomatoes to combatting powdery mildew on squash, it's high season for questions about your garden. We speak to Patrick Parent, product line manager at Mahoney's Garden Center and host of the gardening radio show, Paul Parent Garden Club, which his father started more than 50 years ago.
  • Cambridge-based author Yelena Lembersky joins us to talk about her new memoir, "Like a Drop of Ink in a Downpour: Memories of Soviet Russia." The book explores her and her mother's lives — and eventual escape — from Soviet Russia.
