Today on Boston Public Radio: We opened lines to talk with listeners about the idea of a one-term presidency, and whether you think it might benefit America's political system. Pine Street Inn President Lyndia Downey talked about work being done at the Pine Street Inn to empower Boston's homeless residents to vote, and how her organization is preparing for Thanksgiving during the pandemic. Corey Lewandowski, a senior advisor for President Trump’s reelection campaign, talked about how he's feeling ahead of next Tuesday’s presidential election, and why he doesn’t believe in the constitutionality of a nationwide mask mandate. He also rebuked criticisms of President Trump’s refusal to address the QAnon conspiracy theory. Salem Mayor Kim Driscoll talked about the experience of leading her city through Halloween season during the coronavirus pandemic, and discussed what’s being done to keep Witch City residents safe – and tourists at bay. Beat the Press host Emily Rooney reflected on the passing of Travis Roy, a former hockey player-turned activist and motivational speaker. She also discussed news of the unmasked "anonymous" Trump staffer, and read a pre-election list of fixations and fulminations. Under the Radar host Callie Crossley talked about the perforce of moderator Kristen Welker at the last presidential debate, and specifically her handling of questions about race and “the talk” that nonwhite parents have with their children in the U.S. She also touched on how grocery chain Trader Joe's has managed to weather economic storm of the pandemic, and previewed Sunday’s episode of Under the Radar. We closed the show by opening our lines to talk with listeners about the shows, movies, and music you’re taking in to offset the unease of this pre-election moment.
