This is the Radio Boston rundown for Feb 2. Tiziana Dearing is our host.

  • At the aging Ash Street Jail, former Sheriff Thomas Hodgson imposed a management style some might call old-school and that his opponents often characterized as medieval. Others have criticized the jail's substandard conditions. Hodgson lost his most recent re-election bid to Democrat Paul Heroux, who initially campaigned on reforming the jail. Heroux joins the show to explain why he now hopes to close the jail altogether.
  • Sports Roundup: Last night, the Bruins beat the Maple Leafs and the Celtics beat the Nets. Our panel of local experts breaks down the games, and dives into what Tom Brady's second retirement means for Boston.
  • In a part-two interview with New England Revolution center back Henry Kessler, he guides new soccer fans through how they can begin to appreciate the game.
