Today on Boston Public Radio:
Chuck Todd Zoomed in to discuss how Democratic Sen. Raphael Warnock's victory over Herschel Walker in Georgia was the latest sign that Donald Trump’s brand of conservatism is waning in popularity. He also discussed the latest upheaval to the media industry following the closing of the Washington Post Magazine, a strike by more than 1,100 employees at the New York Times and the continuing closures of local newspapers under control by large conglomerates. Chuck Todd is the moderator of “Meet the Press,” host of “Meet the Press Daily” on MSNBC, and the political director for NBC News.
We then asked listeners to call in and talk about where they receive their news and what they miss about the local coverage provided by smaller newspapers.
Gov. Charlie Baker came into the studio for his last segment of "Ask the Governor" before he leaves office in January. He talked about how he doesn't own a car and is confused by newer models, some of his proudest moments in office and received some surprise calls from former Gov. Bill Weld, Gov.-elect Maura Healey and Labor Secretary Marty Walsh.
Nadia Liu Spellman of Dumpling Daughter joined with her mother, restaurateur Sally Ling, to discuss their respective culinary careers and their new book "Dumpling Daughter Cookbook." Spellman is the owner of Dumpling Daughter, which has three locations in the Boston area, and Ling owned the famous Boston restaurant Sally Ling’s.
We ended the show with a call-in segment, asking our listeners how they feel when their adult children get a little too comfortable using vulgarities.
