508 #61: Embolden the punks

508 is a show about Worcester. This week’s panel features Brendan Melican and Kevin Ksen.


The Telegram & Gazette continues to be in financial trouble; things look awful for their parent, the New York Times. Nevertheless, they continue to bird-dog local police misconduct and write about downtown retail.

We briefly discuss the election, which Brendan predicted with some success.

Some local college students aren’t happy with downtown Worcester.

Mike is going to DC next year to work against torture, and local Catholic Workers were sentenced to community service for praying the rosary.
