  • Boston Mayor Marty Walsh joined BPR for his monthly "Ask the Mayor" segment. He talked about diversity in the Boston municipal employee pool, casinos in Boston, and the Bruins playoff run.
  • Emily Rooney talked about Jared Remy, and offered another installment of Emily's List. Emily hosts Greater Boston and Beat the Press on WGBH 2.
  • Insects may be the best sustainable, protein-rich foodstock you're not eating. Jim and Margery opened the lines to ask listeners if they were ready to embrace entomophagy.
  • For the Friday News Quiz, voiceover artists Don Goonan and Sally Nutt battled it out for news quiz supremacy. For more information go to Don Goonan's website, or to Sally Nutt's.
