J Squared – Spring Into Spring

J Squared – Spring Into Spring
J SquaredLet’s face it. It is hard to go out in winter. You have to get the scarf...and the hat...and the gloves...and the coat. Then you have dig your car out or negotiate a labyrinth of semi-shoveled walkways on your way to the T. And of course your feet get wet. Then freezing cold. Most nights, it is far easier to stay cooped up under a few blankets, order some Kung Pao Chicken and catch up on the 4th season of Dexter on DVD. But hey, people! The snow is gone. The days are getting longer. The birds are chirping. Winter is actually over. And while the crocuses and tulips are just starting to blossom, the city is already in full bloom, with new restaurants, museums exhibitions, concerts, and special events waiting for you. Our resident insiders J squared—WGBH‘s Jared Bowen and Jan Saragoni—are here to spring you from your house and into Spring with some not-to-be missed events around town.

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
