This is the Aug. 30 rundown for Radio Boston. Tiziana Dearing is our host:

  • We speak with WBUR senior reporter Miriam Wasser about a pilot program in Massachusetts involving 10 cities that will ban fossil fuel hook-ups in new construction. Lisa Cunningham of ZeroCarbonMA and Henry Celli from Boston's CBT Architects also join the conversation.
  • Natasha Warikoo, a sociology professor at Tufts University, discusses her book "Race at the Top: Asian Americans and Whites in Pursuit of the American Dream in Suburban Schools."
  • We revisit a conversation with Rob Kapilow. Kapilow is best known for his "What Makes It Great?" series, in which he takes a well-known song, composer or genre and unpacks why certain works or artists have such lasting power.
