This is the Aug. 31 rundown for Radio Boston. Tiziana Dearing is our host:

  • Congressman Seth Moulton and former Massachusetts Secretary of Transportation Jim Aloisi join the program to discuss the Federal Transit Administration's final report on major safety issues facing the MBTA.
  • In Massachusetts, there is a shortage of teachers, especially teachers of color. We speak with Nicole Harris, the associate dean for the School of Education at Salem State University, and Lourenço Garcia, assistant superintendent of Equity and Inclusion for Revere Public Schools, to learn more about what's causing the shortage and what's being done to fix it.
  • We're airing another Rob Kapilow gem; this time he breaks down the genius of American conductor and composer Leonard Bernstein.
