Inside a Rehab Empire
Reveal

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.

What cops aren't learning (rebroadcast)
Reveal

Some police departments are embracing a set of tactics designed to reduce the use of force – and prevent police shootings. Rather than rushing in aggressively, officers back off, wait out people in crisis and use words instead of weapons. But this training isn't required in most states. Reveal teams up with APM Reports and finds that most cops spend a lot more time training to shoot their guns than learning how to avoid firing them.

Reveal Presents: The View from Room 205
Reveal

In 2014, WBEZ Chicago reporter Linda Lutton followed a class of fourth-graders at William Penn Elementary School on Chicago’s West Side. She wanted to explore a big idea that’s at the heart of the American dream: Can public schools be the great equalizer in society, giving everyone a chance to succeed, no matter where they come from or how much money their families have? Lutton told the story in a Peabody Award-nominated show, “The View from Room 205.” This week, Reveal presents a condensed version of that documentary. Don’t miss the next big story.

More to the Story: Redlining, Wildfires and Trump's Mansion
Reveal

Reveal digs deep – and gets results. This week’s episode shines a light on three recent investigations that made a splash. By mining data from 31 million records, we discover a pattern of mortgage loan denials to applicants of color in more than 60 U.S. metropolitan areas. Our story leads to investigations and demands for accountability at the federal, state and city levels. While many people of color have trouble getting mortgages, we investigate one high-end property that didn’t even need one. Our investigation shows the bizarre way that Donald Trump ended up with a $10 million Beverly Hills mansion. Next, we revisit our investigation with our partners at KQED into California’s deadliest wildfires to determine what’s being done to ensure that emergency response failures are not repeated as the next wildfire season approaches.

Trumping Hate
Reveal

There’s been a lot of conversation about whether Donald Trump has inspired a new wave of hate in America. Reveal reporter Will Carless set out to understand the president’s role in hundreds of hate incidents across the country, with help from the Documenting Hate project led by ProPublica. He found a striking pattern that extended across races, religions and sexual orientation. We also examine what’s going on inside the government agency that’s supposed to be fighting discrimination, the Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division. And we ask what it takes for bystanders in hate speech incidents to become allies. Don’t miss the next big story. Get the Weekly Reveal newsletter at revealnews.org/newsletter.
