This is the Radio Boston rundown for Nov. 16. Tiziana Dearing is our host.

  • In Lowell, nearly 1,700 kids — or roughly one out of every 10 students — are currently experiencing homelessness. That's about double the percentage from just three years ago. We talk with two folks working on the ground to help address the growing crisis.
  • Museums across Massachusetts are rethinking how they curate and talk about Native American belongings and artwork. We talk to two local curators about how they're approaching the work.
  • Cognoscenti, WBUR's ideas and opinions page, turned 10 this year. To celebrate, we're talking with past contributors about their essays to highlight their stories and experiences. In this segment, we're joined by author John Vercher.

This program aired on November 16, 2022.
