    Love Punch Brothers. We’ve seen them in Maine & Austin. And in Boston, Chris Thile with Yo Yo Ma in the Goat Rodeo Sessions took us to new places entirely. What they bring is a new way of learning and loving music and the ways it communicates across boundaries of all sorts. It’s fun and thrilling– and they’re incredible musicians.

Hosts Meghna Chakrabarti and Anthony Brooks introduce us to newsmakers, big thinkers and artists and bring us stories of relevance to Bostonians here and around the region. Live every weekday at 3.
