Whitey Bulger Arrested

Whitey Bulger Arrested
Whitey Bulger and Catherine Greig We figured something must be up – just two days ago the FBI stepped up its search for Whitey Bulger’s girlfriend Catherine Grieg – and since they were targeted TV viewers in the USA with public service announcements  we were guessing the FBI knew Whitey was somewhere in the country. And sure enough he was. Last night the FBI picked up Whitey and Catherine at their home in Santa Monica. Initial reports say he is not in good health and that he did not resist arrest we'll hear some great old sound from interviews we’ve done over the years with some of the people Whitey shook down and from his onetime ally in the FBI John Connolly. And we check in with crime reporter Casey Sherman, WGBH's Jared Bowen, The Boston Herald's Howie Carr, The Boston Globe's Kevin Cullen, All Soul's author Michael Patrick MacDonald in California, Thomas Hussey - who is the father of a Bulger victim and the LA Times' Andrew Blankstein.

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
