Dusk over Great Harbor, Woods Hole.

This week: The migrant group is moving on from Joint Base Cape Cod: some going to the Outer Cape, some heading back to the Vineyard. And, a tragic murder-suicide raises questions about the Cape’s county jail and the role of the region’s mental health hospital. And the Midcape Highway is going electric.

We have those stories and more, as CAI News Director Steve Junker speaks with some of the region’s leading journalists.

This week's guests include CAI's Jennette Barnes and Sam Houghton; George Brennan of the MV Times; Ryan Bray of the Cape Cod Chronicle; Ed Miller of the Provincetown Independent; Jack Spillane of the New Bedford Light; CAI's Kathryn Eident with Statehouse Reporter Katie Lannon; and CAI's Eve Zuckoff.
