Here’s the Radio Boston rundown for Aug. 20. Tiziana Dearing is our host.

  • With former Vice President Joe Biden preparing for the biggest speech of his life and Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren joining Democrats in rallying around him, we discuss what this year’s Democratic National Convention means for New England with Rep. Ayanna Pressley and former Gov. Deval Patrick.
  • A new report from conservation group The Trustees of Reservations sounds the alarm on how climate change is affecting Massachusetts’s North Shore, from increased tidal flooding to beach erosion. WBUR environmental editor Barbara Moran helps us unpack the report’s findings.
  • The chaos of this summer has been reflected in our music, where the number one Billboard slot has felt like a rotating door of hits. We talk about finding great songs in a chaotic summer with Tim Riley and Prince Charles Alexander.
