Week In Review

Week In Review
Week in ReviewSummer officially began this week and it’s sure felt like it here in the Bay State with temperatures soaring into the 90s. Fitting — as heat has been the theme of the week. Last night, King Lebron James finally earned that crown as he and his Heat won the NBA title in Miami. And perhaps Senator Scott Brown was feeling the heat when he said he’s been meeting in secret with king and queens and prime ministers every day. What in the world is that all about? Curt Schilling admits that the meltdown of his company cost him a $50 million fortune that it took him an entire career to amass. And is the Federal Bureau of Prisons in hot water? Sal DiMasi’s ominous cancer diagnosis raises questions about whether he was denied timely treatment while in prison. We turn up the heat on all of this — and more — on our week in review.

Guests:

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
