Description

From prisons to protests, immigration to the environment, Peabody Award-winning Reveal goes deep into the pressing issues of our times. The Atlantic says “the experience of each episode is akin to a spoonful of sugar, even when it’s telling a story about Richard Spencer’s cotton farms or a man’s final days as a heroin addict.” Reveal is a project of The Center for Investigative Reporting and is co-produced with PRX. The show is hosted by Al Letson and partners with reporters and newsrooms around the world, including The Washington Post, ProPublica, APM, The Marshall Project and The Investigative Fund. Reveal is a Pulitzer Prize finalist and has won many broadcast journalism awards, including a duPont and three national Emmys.

I'm an overworked, underpaid and underappreciated CNA in a nursing home owned by an ever growing corporation. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR PUTTING YOUR TIME AND ENERGY INTO AN ISSUE THAT NEVER SEEMS TO GET ANY MEDIA ATTENTION!!!

interesting epi, although towwards the end when interviewing the redneck, Reveal loses some credibility with me. Granted this redneck, Keabler I think his name is, does go too far on the Muslims taking over our schools conspiracy, it is in fact something that is happening and I've witnessed it first hand. When looking at thebexyreme side of Islam, certain tactics rely on the long game. My sister in Law went through this with her daughter. One day her daughter came home from school asking her mom to help on her history homework. So as she was helping and going through her book she noticed a lot of inaccuracies, most continents and countries were renamed with Muslim in from of their names, reciting the Muslim prayer excepting Islam was in the book and many other instances that were not true and pitting Islam as the victors and in the right. She decided to look into it and they tried to get her to stop bit she didn't and took it further and was able to get on the school board that decides what books are taught in her child's district. Come to find out the publisher of this history book is a Muslim family owned business that pushed the Islam narrative very heavily. Thankfully she was able to get that book not only taken out of her kids school district but was able to get that and many other books published by this company out of school curriculum.

I understand the frustration. I wish we could limit where our tax dollars go, i.e. Planned Parenthood

You have seen nothing. Understand, nothing. I can only hope that if you work in these fields that the damage you've done is some day healed.

Let me be clear. As a victim of abuse who nobody believed. Who everyone told me my mother wasn't abusive. You are so very wrong and your attitude causes very real harm. This is a recipe for disaster.

Parental alienation is absolute bullshit. This actually makes me so viciously angry. If I was ever to get my hands on these judges they would end up seriously hurt.

Quite possibly the best report I have listened to by Reveal - and you have had a number of good ones. This crazy theory appears to have emotional injured so many children and families. this is so wrong.

This episode rambles and is very poorly told. Had to turn it off.

sometimes I wish after the civil war we brought all slaves North and let the south leave the union. To this day they produce little, are ranked the lowest in most categories and are the poorest but they love to keep hate alive. If we let the south leave today they'd be bankrupt in 10 years. It's no wonder the north has all the best universities, tech, engineering, arts, media, science, real estate, high paying jobs. the north pays the nation's bills, the south is a welfare state
