The Boston Public Radio podcast for 11/15/13.

On Thursday, Pres. Obama took to the White House press room to announce changes to the Affordable Care Act. Millions who would have seen their insurance plans canceled can now keep them — at least for one more year. Obama admitted mistakes in the rollout of his signature piece of legislation.

Are you happy with the pivot you've seen from the President? Is it too little, too late? Can the program still be considered a success, down the road? Sue O'Connell — filling in for Jim Braude — and Margery Eagan asked listeners what they thought.

  • Callie Crossley previewed stories for her upcoming edition of Under the Radar.
  • Film critic Garen Daly talked about the portrayal of the elderly (but eternally youthful) in movies.
  • Emily Rooney joined Margery and Sue for another edition of Emily's List.
  • On the Friday News Quiz it was doctor versus doctor. MSPCA Veterinarian Nick Trout — author of The Patron Saint of Lost Dogs — went up against cardiologist Thomas Lee of the Harvard School of Public Health.
