  • The Boston Celtics are ready to take on the Dallas Mavericks for the fifth time tonight, hoping for a win that will nab them the NBA championships. So what can we expect? GBH's sports reporter, Esteban Bustillos, joins Paris to discuss.
  • Queer bookstores are having a moment right now: There's been an uptick in sales of LGBTQ+ fiction, and Massachusetts has a few stores that specialize in books by and about LGBTQ+ people. Morning Edition's Rachel Armany talks to them about why reading is what? Fundamental.
  • Boston's official weather is collected at Logan International Airport, which doesn't always make sense: Conditions at the airport, a mostly open and paved space by the ocean, don't always reflect conditions in the rest of the city. So what does GBH's meteorologist and gardening expert Dave Epstein think? He and Paris talk all about it.
  • Have an old or forgotten credit card bill? You might end up carless. GBH's Jenifer McKim looks into the debt collection tactics of Andrew Metcalf of Avon, now under legal fire and an investigation by the state attorney general's office.
  • Ron Mitchell, the co-owner of the Bay State Banner, is marking one year of owning the paper with a gala tonight. He spoke with Paris about why he’s excited about the paper’s future and why it’s important to have Black representation in the media landscape.
