This is the Radio Boston rundown for July 20. Tiziana Dearing is our host:

  • WBUR's Miriam Wasser and meteorologist Danielle Noyes talk about the short- and long-term consequences of the climate crisis, from the heat wave we're in to the need for government action — at the state and federal level. Plus, we bring back a story from WBUR's Martha Bebinger on an effort to keep communities cool with trees, block by block.
  • WBUR's Gabrielle Emanuel joins us to unpack a popular term that describes seeking abortions in a state where it's legal. Then, Christine Dixon, executive director of Someone Else's Child, tackles how to properly provide direct aid and donations.
  • Jacquie Olds, author of "Overcoming Loneliness in Everyday Life," and Ashley Kirsner, founder of Skip the Small Talk, discuss the plague of loneliness and how we can be less lonely.

This program aired on July 20, 2022.
