Today on Boston Public Radio:
Chuck Todd shared his thoughts on the Supreme Court of the United State’s decision on “proper-cause” gun carriage, the Jan. 6 hearings, and the potential for Donald Trump to run for president in 2024. Todd is the moderator of “Meet The Press” on NBC, host of “Meet The Press Daily” on MSNBC and the political director for NBC News.
Then, we asked listeners what they think it’ll take to bring unity to the U.S. during a bleak week of news.

Paul Reville shared his thoughts on how the Supreme Court gun decision could impact the attitudes of Americans, and whether Boston should wait for a school improvement plan to place a new superintendent. Reville is the former secretary of education and a professor at Harvard University’s Graduate School of Education, where he also runs the Education Redesign Lab. His latest book, co-authored with Lynne Sacks, is “Collaborative Action for Equity and Opportunity: A Practical Guide for School and Community Leaders.”
