Great news cast
Local take on events both local and beyond. High quality content and interviews.
Host Meghna is remarkably talented at getting to the heart of every topic she covers. She has the rare ability to make each topic really interesting-- and I'm always amazed that she can do this even for things I don't even think I'm interested in, until I hear her get into them. (She is one of the few on radio- along with Diane Rehm- who has this quality for me.) Listening to this show has made me appreciate much more deeply what an interesting place Greater Boston really is to live, and would be an equally interesting listen for those who live outside Massachusetts. Thank you so much for this show and for your amazing work!!
