About The Episode

In Boston people of color are disproportionately affected by environmental disasters, climate change and pollution. With April being Earth month, Imari Paris Jeffries, President and CEO of Embrace Boston, joins us to talk about what needs to be done to achieve racial justice through climate justice.

From there, the Boston Public Quartet’s radical welcome. It’s their biggest event of the year, offering a multi-sensory experience and truly welcoming all, with a pay what you want style concert.

Finally, FRONTLINE. They recently won an Academy Award for their documentary film on the war in Ukraine, “20 days in Mariupol.” Their coverage of the war continues with their latest film, “Children of Ukraine” which follows the families and investigators trying to find the children who have gone missing since the war began. Executive Producer Raney Aronson-Rath joins us for that conversation.
