This is the Sept. 7 rundown for Radio Boston. Tiziana Dearing is our host:
- The results from the primary election are in. WBUR reporter Walter Wuthmann and WCVB political reporter Sharman Sacchetti join us to discuss race outcomes and what lies ahead for the general election.
- The CDC estimates two students per classroom experience a food allergy. We speak with Boston Green Academy school nurse Marta Bausemer about how student food allergies impact her work. Dr. Dan Rauch, the chief of pediatric hospital medicine at Tufts University School of Medicine, helps us understand why food allergies are becoming increasingly more common in children.
- Comic books aren't just a vehicle for telling superhero stories. They are also a powerful, flexible form of art, allowing artists and readers to tackle hard issues. Cartoonist and graphic novelist Joel Christian Gill is the inaugural chair of Boston University’s new MFA program in visual narrative. He joins us for the first of what will be a regular segment on the world of comics and graphic art storytelling.
