Episode 86: The Horse Race LIVE at the Races PART 2: Old Town Rail

25 minutes

6/14/2019--It's your lucky day, #MAPoli. Steve and Jenn are bringing you an extra episode this week.

Jenn is surprisingly alive to tell the tale of her hellish commute on the Red Line after its meltdown earlier this week. This being the second derailment in as many days, it's safe to say that commuters are getting fed up. Local leaders are speaking up as well, and the MBTA is responding with a full investigation into the derailments. It also let passengers know to expect slower train times until fixes can be made.

On a lighter note, The Horse Race Live at the Races was a roaring good time, and the guests were spectacular. On Wednesday, you heard from Shannon Liss-Riordan, and today's episodes features our other guests, Salem Mayor Kim Driscoll and Boston City Councilor Lydia Edwards talking about the state of housing in Boston and throughout the Commonwealth. Plus, Anthony Amore, security director at the Isabella Stewart Gardener Museum, gave Steve and Jenn the lowdown on the tie between Suffolk Downs and that infamous art heist.
