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

  • We dive beneath the headlines on one of the biggest stories of the week: the selection of Boston's next police commissioner. We're joined by Marie St. Fleur, former Massachusetts state representative and a member of the Boston Police Reform Task Force; Kim Janey, former acting mayor of Boston; and Kelly Nee, Boston University chief of police who spent decades in the Boston Police Department.
  • Gus Rancatore, owner of Toscanini's Ice Cream, and Chef Joe Gatto of From Scratch, bring some of their most creative ice cream flavors to the table. Espresso chipotle is a surprising smash hit.
  • With the weather expected to be nice this weekend, swing by one of two outdoors arts events. Or, get comfortable inside a repurposed church and listen to classical music. WBUR senior arts and culture reporter Cristela Guerra shares recommendations for the weekend.

This program aired on July 15, 2022.
