I enjoy the in depth news stories on this podcast. Frequently I learn something on this podcast and then hear it repeated a few days later on the national news. Some stories interest me more than others but even when I don’t think I will have much interest in the subject, I learn something new.

Rank #2: If you can’t afford a lawyer

Podcast cover

If you can’t afford a lawyer, one will be appointed to you – that’s how it’s supposed to work. But in New Orleans, the lawyer in charge of representing poor people accused of crimes is saying no. His office doesn’t have enough money or time to do a good job, he says, so he’s refusing some serious cases, which is jamming up the courts and leaving hundreds of people stuck in jail with no lawyer. His goal? To break the system in order to fix it.

Reveal follows up on this story that we first brought you last fall.

Podcast cover

The collision of the opioid epidemic with criminal justice reform has created a boom for the rehab industry. Those with wealth and insurance often are able to pay thousands of dollars for private long-term programs. But the less fortunate have become easy prey for rehabs with a tantalizing promise: freedom from addiction for free.

Reveal reporters Amy Julia Harris and Shoshana Walter have been uncovering the ways that some of these rehabs exploit their desperate clients. In this episode, they describe to host Al Letson the shocking things they found at one rehab in the mountains of North Carolina.

Rank #11: Cops on a Crime Spree

Podcast cover
Read more

Baltimore’s police department was already notorious.

But this year, eight former police officers were convicted on federal racketeering charges stemming from an FBI investigation. They belonged to an elite task force charged with getting guns off the city’s streets. Instead, the plainclothes cops roamed Baltimore neighborhoods at will, robbing people on the street, breaking into homes to steal money, drugs or guns and planting evidence on their victims.

The targets of the Gun Trace Task Force included drug dealers and ordinary citizens. One of its favorite tactics was to speed toward a group of men on a street corner, chase whoever ran and shake them down. On top of all this, the officers falsified their timesheets to almost double their salaries.

This episode of Reveal asks if the task force was simply a rogue operation or if the officers were aided and abetted by fellow cops and even supervisors within the department.

This week, Reveal revisits the story of a woman who decides to confront the man she says abused her decades earlier.

Reporter Tennessee Watson was sexually abused by her gymnastics coach when she was a kid. Over 25 years later, when she learned he still was coaching children, she called the police. Her inside account of the arduous process of seeking justice in her own case exposes discrepancies in prosecutors’ responses to reports of child sexual abuse and spotlights a lack of accountability.

One border official did it for sex. Another blamed depression and financial trouble. Yet another allegedly received cash and a “deluxe” hot tub worth $10,000.

The circumstances of their crimes differ, but prosecutors say these defendants have something in common: The corrupt actions they’re accused of weakened the same U.S. borders and ports of entry they were assigned to protect.

On this episode of Reveal, our joint investigation with The Texas Tribune profiles federal border officials who were arrested for or convicted of acts of corruption that allegedly compromised their mission to stop crime and keep their country secure.

Rank #18: A welfare check

This week, Reveal’s bringing you an episode we first aired this summer. With Republicans in full control of the Federal government, there’s a good chance Welfare Reform will be an issue they may take on. So in anticipation of that, it is worth taking another look at what’s worked and what hasn’t.

Today, only a quarter of welfare dollars actually goes toward basic assistance – housing, transportation or essential household items. So we’ll revisit a road trip we took with Marketplace’s new podcast “The Uncertain Hour” and find out the surprising ways different states use welfare dollars.
