  • Boston Herald columnist Peter Gelzinis and Boston Globe reporter Frank Phillips joined Jim and Margery for BPR's Monday politics segment. They talked about the governor's race, a party imbalance in the Mass. legislature, and the Probation Department patronage trial.
  • St. Patrick's Day is Monday, March 17th, and this year it looks as though gay groups may be allowed to march in the parade in South Boston. Where do you fall down on this — is it too little, too late, or can we finally move past the issue? Jim and Margery opened the lines to listeners.
  • All Revved Up! The Revs. Irene Monroe and Emmett Price returned to Studio Three for their weekly segment. Monroe is a blogger for Huffington Post, and a syndicated religion columnist. Price is a Professor of ethnomusicology and the music industry at Northeastern University.
  • Jared Bowen — host of WGBH's Open Studio — recapped Sunday's Academy Awards.
