Episode 192: Baker's out, on to 2022

35 minutes

12/1/21 --After two terms, Governor Charlie Baker has announced he will not be running for re-election in 2022. The statement led to a frenzy of reactions and speculations throughout the Massachusetts political scene, and many names were bandied about of who might throw their hat in the ring.

Co-host Lisa Kashinsky has been on the ground watching it all unfold. She provides analysis on what Baker's (and Lieutenant Governor Karyn Polito's)decision will mean for the race and the Massachusetts political landscape at large.

Later, the hosts are joined by Massachusetts state representative serving the 9th Suffolk district and Boston Medical Center emergency room doctor Jon Santiago -- he explains the concern behind the omicron variant of coronavirus, what Massachusetts is doing to prepare for its arrival, and what the future might hold for a vaccine passport system in the state.
