Today on Boston Public Radio: We opened Tuesday’s show by talking with listeners about Monday’s confirmation of Amy Coney Barrett to the U.S. Supreme Court. NBC Sports Boston reporter and anchor Trenni Kusnierek weighed in on the Patriots’ 2020 slump, Tom Brady’s success playing with Tampa Bay, and the road ahead for televised sports, which’ve seen huge revenue losses during the pandemic. Dr. Katherine Gergen Barnett explained the troubling spike in coronavirus cases throughout Massachusetts, talked prevention policy, and responded to questions from listeners. Gergen Barnett is the vice chair of Primary Care Innovation and Transformation and Residency Director in the Department of Family Medicine at Boston Medical Center and Boston University Medical School. Satirist P.J. O’Rourke lamented the toxic U.S. political climate and explained why he thinks modern-day rich people are “too comfortable," in a conversation about his new book, “A Cry from the Far Middle: Dispatches from a Divided Land.” Irene Monroe and Emmett Price, hosts of GBH’s All Rev’d Up, questioned the impact of recent endorsements for President Trump from Black entertainers. They also discussed Pope Francis’ endorsement of civil unions, and appointment of the first-ever Black U.S. cardinal. CNN’s John King called in for his weekly politics roundup, discussing Monday's appointment of Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court, and offering his take on where President Donald Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden stand in the days leading up to the presidential election.
