Are Internships Still A Win - Win?

Are Internships Still A Win - Win?
Interns On paper, the internship is one of those clear win-wins. A student who thinks they might want to go into, say, advertising or journalism gets an opportunity to see what the work is really like day-to-day. In return, a company has someone to carry out those tedious low-level tasks and gets an up-close look at the talent pool. But with millions of Americans still out of work and budgets as tight as ever, are interns increasingly becoming simply a source of free labor for companies? Richard Bottner, founder and president of Intern Bridge and author of "Total Internship Management" and Ross Perlin, author of "Intern Nation," join me to discuss.
Check out Ross Perlin's op-ed for The New York Times, "Unpaid Interns, Complicit Colleges"

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
