- May 16th marks the tenth anniversary of the first legal same-sex marriages in Massachusetts. The day before the anniversary, Bay Windows and South End News co-publisher Sue O'Connell joined Jim Braude and Emily Rooney to talk about the Goodridge decision, and the decade hence.
- Callie Crossley talked about a controversial vote in the Boston City Council, spoke on the closing of Charlie's Sandwich Shoppe in the South End, and previewed her show Under the Radar with Callie Crossley.
- Emmett G. Price III and Edgar B. Herwick III broke down the new Michael Jackson album, Xscape. Price is a Northeastern University professor, and a regular guest on BPR's "All Revved Up." Herwick is the man behind the WGBH Curiosity Desk.
- Emily Rooney — despite co-hosting — also offered yet another edition of Emily's List.
- For the Friday News Quiz, Rick Roth took on Rick Roth. Wait, what? That's right — "Gloucester" Rick Roth works for the Cape Ann Vernal Pond Team, and "Littleton" Rick Roth works for Creature Teachers. The two hadn't met before this Globe piece. Then they went head-to-head on the News Quiz — and they brought snakes.
