How New Skipper Bobby Valentine Will Bring Change To Red Sox Nation

How New Skipper Bobby Valentine Will Bring Change To Red Sox Nation
Bobby ValentineIt took two months and a parade of candidates, but the Red Sox have found their next manager in Bobby Valentine. He wasn’t likely their first choice – but our sports insider Bob Lobel weighs on why many believe the fiery and outspokenveteran is the right man for the job. Plus, in the wake of a hazing incident involving members of the Andover High basketball team, we discuss this sometimes disturbing aspect of sports culture. Why do these rituals continue to occur and what can be done to prevent them?

Guests:
  Bob Lobel, longtime Boston sportscaster
  Dr. Susan Lipkins, psychologist and author of Preventing Hazing: How Parents, Teachers, and Coaches Can Stop the Violence, Harassment, and Humiliation

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
