This week on Under the Radar with Callie Crossley:

President Joe Biden announced on Aug. 24 that he was enacting a student loan forgiveness plan, erasing $10,000 for borrowers who make under $125,000 a year and an extra $10,000 for Pell Grant recipients. How will this impact the midterms? And will the GOP take control of Congress?

And for local news, the Mass Politics Profs discuss MBTA woes, local elections and the passing of the immigrant driver's license bill.
