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

  • A Natick police officer was accused of sexual assault and, initially, the police department shrugged off the allegations. For two years, the town has fought to keep records about how it responded secret. WBUR's Ally Jarmanning joins us "From the Newsroom" to tell us what her and Todd Wallack's reporting has uncovered.
  • Harvard historian Jill Lepore is back with the third season of her podcast, "The Last Archive," this time exploring solutions to the problems of online misinformation. She joins us to talk about an experiment at Cambridge Rindge and Latin School to see if teenagers could help solve the problem of misinformation in political ads on social media.
  • In the first installment of our new music series, "Sample This," Boston musician DJ Real P gives us a crash course on sampling, teaching us how to use one song to make another.

This program aired on October 31, 2022.
