Today on Boston Public Radio:

William F. and Virginia Connolly Mitty Professor and founding head of the Division of Medical Ethics at NYU School of Medicine in New York City.
Juliette Kayyem broke down the latest news across the political divide, including the meaning of new Republican catchphrase “let’s go Brandon,” and a QAnon rally in Dallas yesterday, where supporters waited for the appearance of John F. Kennedy, Jr., who famously died over 20 years ago. Kayyem is an analyst for CNN, former assistant secretary at the Department of Homeland Security and faculty chair of the homeland security program at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government.
