This is the Radio Boston rundown for July 19. Tiziana Dearing is our host:
- Massachusetts Congresswoman Lori Trahan joins us to talk about a number of issues, including the ongoing efforts to codify reproductive rights at the state and federal levels in the wake of the Supreme Court's decision to overturn Roe v. Wade.
- With more than 50 cases of MPV — also known as monkeypox — identified in Massachusetts, Provincetown is drawing on lessons from the HIV/AIDS and COVID-19 pandemics in its response. We talk to State Sen. Julian Cyr, who represents Provincetown, and Dan Gates, president and CEO of the AIDS Support Group of Cape Cod.
- Lace was so valuable in the late 1700s that you could use it like money.Now, imagine 600 women, men and children in Ipswich making it at home. They became an economic engine, but are now mostly a part of Massachusetts' Hidden History. Katherine Chaison, curator at the Ipswich Museum, and Mary Mangan, lace maker and member of the New England Lace Group, join us to talk more about this industry.
