South Hadley – One Year Later

South Hadley – One Year Later: South Hadley teenager Phoebe Prince took her own life one year ago tomorrow. For the Irish émigré’s family and friends, her suicide was a private tragedy. But her death also made South Hadley an international scapegoat for the problem of school bullying. Time has passed, and the media spotlight has moved on - but the town of South Hadley is still struggling to come to terms with Prince’s death. WGBH’s Adam Reilly has made several trips to South Hadley in the past month to see how much as changed – or hasn’t – over the past year and he joins us.

The Great Back Bay Blackout
After a smoky electrical transformer fire knocked out power to about 21,000 homes and businesses, sections of the neighborhood are getting back online. But problems are expected to persist into tonight. We’ll have the latest.

Guests:
  Garrett Quinn, WGBH contributor and author of the Less is More blog on Boston.com
  Meg Mainzer-Cohen, president of the Back Bay Association
  Marcia Gregg, a Back Bay resident who (along with her family) lost power (and still doesn’t have it)
  David Jacobs, publisher and editor The Boston Courant, covers Back Bay, South End Beacon Hill and Fenway

The Baffler Is Back
The self-described “journal that blunts the cutting edge” is back in print after a two-year hiatus. The Baffler’s latest issue of scathing media, political and cultural criticism hits newsstands tomorrow. And no cow is sacred. (Not even the one that pays its bills).

Guests:
  John Summers, editor of The Baffler
  Thomas Frank, journalist and author of books like What’s The Matter With Kansas? and most recently, Pity The Billionaire. Founding editor of The Baffler
