GUESTS FOR WEDNESDAY APRIL 16, 2014 ON THE JEFF SANTOS SHOW: Former Bruins defenseman Andrew Ference joins us for Green Day...877-489-9421.
- Andrew Ference, former defenseman for the Boston Bruins and current Captain of the Edmonton Oilers. It's "Green Day Wednesday"...our guest Andrew Ference is widely known for his environmental activism - people around the National Hockey League call him "Mr. Green" because of that. We'll ask him about Earth Day next week and other green issues he's focusing on these days (Edmonton is in Alberta, home of the Tar Sands that Keystone XL pipeline supporters would like to ship to the Gulf Coast...) We'll also talk a little hockey of course, and ask the Oilers' captain how it's going on his new team, what their prospects are for 2015...and how he thinks of his time here in Boston - especially on this week when we remember the Marathon bombing.
- Maria Cramer, Boston Globe Reporter. One year since the Boston Marathon bombing and a lot of things have changed in the city... next Monday is the 2014 Boston Marathon with thousands more runners signed up than last year. People are feeling "Boston Strong" and wanting to show solidarity...but how will this event be different than past marathons? Maria has been researching the security changes for this year's marathon and is here to tell us about it.
- Terry O'Neill, President, National Organization for Women (NOW). The "new" GOP is claiming to be inclusive - by dropping anti-gay/anti-women planks from their platforms, - but are they really?
- Scott Bates, President at the Center for National Policy (a Truman National Security Project Partner). We'll look at the current situation between Russia and Ukraine: the latest movements in Ukraine with Russian troops and Russian-backed activists; how Ukrainians are responding; are our EU/G7 allies playing a "wait-and-see" game with Putin; and how much support is there for different sides?
