Get ready for ‘Rhode Island Report, Live’

The Boston Globe

Wake the kids. Call the neighbors.

The Rhode Island Report podcast is marking its 100th episode and highlighting its ongoing collaboration with Rhode Island PBS with a special event on May 31, “Rhode Island Report, Live: Celebrating Civic Leadership.”

I’ll be joining Jim Ludes, a host of Rhode Island PBS’ “Story in the Public Square,” to explore the big topics facing Rhode Island with the state’s two top legislative leaders -- House Speaker K. Joseph Shekarchi and Senate President Dominick J. Ruggerio.

The event, presented with support from the Rhode Island Foundation, will begin with an introduction by Neil Steinberg as he concludes 15 years as president and CEO of the foundation. The program will conclude with analysis by Brown University political science Professor Wendy J. Schiller.


The event will take place from 6 to 8 p.m. Wednesday, May 31, at the Rhode Island PBS studios at 50 Park Lane in Providence.

Space is limited, so Globe Rhode Island subscribers and Rhode Island PBS members will get priority access. You can become a Rhode Island PBS member here, and you can subscribe to the Globe here. To RSVP, go here.

If you haven’t tuned into the Rhode Island Report podcast yet, check it out this Thursday as I talk about taxes, Trump, and reality TV with Richard Hatch, the Newport resident who won the first season of “Survivor.”
