Today on Boston Public Radio:
We began the show by asking listeners if President Joe Biden should run for a second term, and if not, who should replace him.
Charlie Sennott shared his thoughts about Biden’s upcoming trip to Saudi Arabia, Boris Johnson’s resignation, and the assasination of former Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe. Sennott is a news analyst for GBH and the founder of the GroundTruth Project.
Adam Chandler discussed the ways that start-ups can be market disruptors. He covered the destruction they can leave behind within ghost kitchens, grocery delivery services, and rideshare companies, especially in the context of Uber’s recent leak. Chandler is a journalist and author based in New York, and a former staff writer at The Atlantic.
Tyler Akabane talked about his new store, The Mushroom Shop, discussed the cultural moment that mushrooms are having, and shared his foraging recommendations. Akabane is the founder and owner of The Mushroom Shop, a specialty mushroom shop in Somerville.
Then, we asked listeners whether they buy into mushroom mania.
Revs. Irene Monroe and Emmett Price weighed in on the politics of the Supreme Court in the context of their recent landmark decisions, as well as recent calls to serve a dormant warrant for false testimony during Emmett Till’s trial. Monroe is a syndicated religion columnist and the Boston voice for Detour’s African American Heritage Trail. Price is founding pastor of Community of Love Christian Fellowship in Allston, and the Inaugural Dean of Africana Studies at Berklee College of Music.
