Revere City Council President Anthony Zambuto and Reverend Tim Bogertman of the First Congregational Church of Revere debated the benefits of a casino landing in Revere — or nearby Chelsea. Zambuto was cautiously optimistic about the benefits, while Bogertman was not.

Also on BPR:

  • Will Sen. Ed Markey's new gun legislation tip the scales in favor of more gun regulation? Jim and Margery asked listeners where they stand on fingerpint IDs for gun owners.
  • Alex Beam stopped by to discuss robot rights and California drought. Beam is a columnist for the Boston Globe.
  • Should kids be allowed in all restaurants? Jim and Margery asked when it's appropriate to bring your children into fancy, five-star dining environments.
  • Kara Miller previewed her upcoming Innovation Hub show by talking about the addictiveness of sugar.
