Jim Braude and Margery Eagan took to the air moments after Boston Mayor Marty Walsh's inauguration at Boston College. January 6, 2014 marks the start of a new, post-Menino era in Boston.

Jim and Margery talked to Ed Glaeser from Harvard's Rappaport Institute. Glaeser told Jim and Margery how Dudley Square can become a hub for innovation and new business. He also talked about what Mayor Walsh can with the Boston Redevelopment Authority.

WGBH's Peter Kadzis and UMass Boston Prof. Erin O'Brien also discussed the new Walsh era, the Massachusetts governor's race, and national politics in 2014.

Also on BPR:

  • Jim and Margery opened the lines to talk all-things-marijuana. Colorado now sells and taxes the stuff. The state of Washington will soon, too. Could Massachusetts and other states be far behind?
  • Dr. David Katz, author of Disease Proof, discussed ways to shape up your health in 2014 without crash-dieting.
