The health care reform roller coaster put America through yet another loop this week. No sooner had we heard there was a Trump-backed, bipartisan deal in place then President Donald Trump pulled his support and the dealis now in limbo.

From the 1992 Barcelona Olympics, to the waters of the Charles — this weekend, three women will reunite after 25 years to compete in the annual Head of the Charles. Mary Mazzio and Cindy Matthes placed in sixth for the '92 U-S women's rowing team while Annabel Eyres' team placed in fourth rowing for the U-K. The former Olympians will share the water again at the Boston rowing competition, the largest two-day event of its kind. Mazzio, Matthew and Eyres joined Adam Reilly to discuss.

Mark Twain once said, "If you don't like the weather in New England now, just wait a few minutes." But that doesn't apply to the storms in horror writer Joe Hill's newest work, Strange Weather. The book is a collection of four novels, which feature storms of photos, needles, wind and bullets in lieu of raindrops. Hill, also the author of The Fireman, Heart-Shaped Box and the Locke and Key comic books — which are being made into a Hulu series — joined Adam Reilly to discuss his work and the social issues within. Joe Hill will appear at the Brookline Booksmith on Monday, October 23rd at 7pm.
