This is the Radio Boston rundown for Sept. 15. Tiziana Dearing is our host.

  • Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis paid for an unannounced flight to Martha's Vineyard to carry about 50 migrants who were earlier in San Antonio, Texas, to Massachusetts. We talk to Gladys Vega, executive director of La Colaborativa in Chelsea, about the challenges facing the new arrivals.
  • CineFest Latino Boston Film Festival kicks off this month and aims to celebrate the Latino filmmaking community. We talk to founder and executive director Sabrina Avilés and Boston-based filmmaker Monica Cohen about the power of film to share and uplift culture.
  • Local chefs face off in a Radio Boston showdown. Joe Gatto, private chef and host of "From Scratch" on Pluto TV, and Lambert Givens, executive chef of Hunter's Kitchen and Bar in South Boston, compete to wow Tiziana Dearing with their takes on seasonal apple-inspired dishes.

This program aired on September 15, 2022.
