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

  • Signs outside the construction site of Boston's first housing development for LGBTQ seniors were vandalized over the weekend, and supporters of the LGBTQ community rallied Sunday afternoon in response. We speak to Gretchen Van Ness, the executive director of the nonprofit behind the development.
  • Former Massachusetts Gov. Michael Dukakis once worked closely with former Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe. He joins us to talk about the recently assassinated world leader and his connections to Boston.
  • WBUR's Deborah Becker joins us to speak about her new story detailing sexual misconduct against women in prison, and trans women housed in men's prisons.
  • The well-known Provincetown spree killer Tony Costa is the subject of Helltown, a new book by investigative journalist and Cape Cod native Casey Sherman. We speak to Sherman about the book, and to legendary photojournalist Stan Foreman, who documented the killings in the 1960s.
