This is the Radio Boston rundown for Aug. 2. Tiziana Dearing is our host:
- Local chef Tiffani Faison is back from the Food Network throwdown, "Beachside Brawl." We ask her about her rising TV celebrity, her calling to keep making food in Boston, and what summer dishes we can cook up at home.
- Local author Rajani LaRocca, of Concord, writes children's books that explore the Indian-American experience. She joins us to discuss her middle-grade novel "Red, White, and Whole," where Reha, the only Indian-American student at her school, struggles to integrate her identities as her mother get sicker and sicker.
- When the city clears an encampment, what do the people who lived there lose? Brendan Little, who experienced homelessness and is the former policy director for the Mayor's Office of Recovery Services under Boston Mayor Marty Walsh, joins us to discuss.
