This is the Radio Boston rundown for Jan. 20. Yasmin Amer is our host.

  • The case of Ana Walshe, a mother from Cohasset who went missing and whose husband is charged with her murder, has dominated headlines for the last three weeks. We look at the legal aspect, the media coverage, and the thread of domestic violence that winds through Walshe's case.
  • A new investigation by ProPublica has found that a handful of institutions, including Harvard University, holds thousands of remains of Native Americans. We discuss repatriation with the president of the North American Indian Center of Boston and the ProPublica reporter who wrote the story.
  • During her campaign, Gov. Maura Healey laid the groundwork for a comprehensive housing policy. Now that she's in office, WBUR reporter Simón Rios breaks down her priorities.

This program aired on January 20, 2023.
