September 12, 2013

The primary for the Boston mayor's race is on September 24th, leaving only a small window of opportunity for candidates to break from the rest of the pack. This week candidates weighed in at a number of forums. David Bernstein joined Callie Crossley and Peter Kadzis — filling in for Jim and Margery — to talk about Wednesday night's teachers' forum. Jared Bowen talked about a Monday night arts forum the candidates attended.

  • Thursday marks Tufts University's first annual National Dialogue on Race Day. Peniel Joseph told Callie and Peter why he organized the conference.
  • Aria Weissman lost her brother Erik to an unsolved murder in Waltham in 2011. Weissman talked with Jim and Margery about her frustration about the investigation.
  • Chris Lydon examined the origins of Pres. Obama's philosophy on war, peace, and his tricky position leading the world's largest military.
  • Kara Miller talked about innovations that could potentially give the healthcare industry a tremendous shot in the arm.
