WCAI's Kathryn Eident talks with journalists from around the Cape and Islands about the week's top stories. This week, they discuss: a proposal to build a so-called "racino," a slots parlor and race track in Wareham; an investigation into allegations of animal cruelty at a horse farm in Falmouth; and how thousands of immature oysters were stolen from town aquaculture beds in Sandwich. 

 

Her guests include: Geoff Spillane from the Cape Cod Times, Brittany Bowker from the Martha’s Vineyard Times, Josh Balling of the Nantucket Inquirer and Mirror, Bill Eville of the Vineyard Gazette, KC Meyers from the Provincetown Banner, Tim Wood of the Cape Cod Chronicle, and WCAI reporter Eve Zuckoff. 

Kathryn Eident is an award-winning journalist and hosts WCAI's Morning Edition. She began producing stories for WCAI in 2008 as a Boston University graduate student reporting from the Statehouse. Since then, Kathryn’s work has appeared in the Boston Globe, Cape Cod Times, Studio 360, Scientific American, and Cape and Plymouth Business Magazine.
