Everything Money - Back To $chool Edition 
Everything MoneyTens of thousands of young adults have been descending upon area colleges and universities, swelling the population of Boston neighborhoods and Bay State towns alike. So what does the yearly influx mean for our local economy? And then there is the other side of that coin. Tuition costs are rising and the middle class is shrinking. Just how are students actually paying for college – and all the goods and services that go with it –these days? With us to shed some light on all of this is our personal finance expert Sheryl Marshall.

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
