||CleanThe Hearing||This is a story about who is allowed to vote... and who is not. In Florida, the ultimate swing state, 1.5 million people cannot vote, because they have a past felony on their record. And there is one way to try and get that right back: Ask the governor directly.||11/1/2018||Free||View in iTunes|

||CleanThe Red Line||From 2011-2013, Kelly covered the war in Syria, where people would ask, "Why won't the U.S. intervene?" Then came a chemical attack, ordered by Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, that killed more than 1,000 people, and the U.S. almost intervened, but didn't. Now, a new book tells why.||6/27/2018||Free||View in iTunes|

||CleanTrump Stories: Scott Pruitt||As Donald Trump's EPA Administrator, Scott Pruitt is popular with conservatives for his aggressive rollback of Obama-era environmental regulations. He has also been strongly criticized for alleged ethics violations. But there's another side of Pruitt that's less well known. Pruitt is a Southern Baptist, and for years, his politics focused on faith-based issues like abortion and religious freedom. Pruitt has publicly said he doubts the science behind the theory of evolution. In this episode, we examine how Pruitt's faith informs his views on the environment, and how he handled a major pollution case in Oklahoma.

||CleanTrump Stories: Obstruction||Embedded tells the story of another part of special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation--the question of whether President Trump may have obstructed justice by attempting to thwart the Russia investigation.

||ExplicitTrump Stories: Collusion||Embedded tells the story of Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election.

Through new interviews, archival research, and a look at key moments — from Miss Universe in Moscow, to hacked emails and promises of "dirt" — Embedded pieces together the story that defined the first year of the Trump White House.||2/8/2018||Free||View in iTunes|

||ExplicitTrump Stories: The Golf Course||When Donald Trump came to Rancho Palos Verdes in Southern California in 2002, he was greeted as a "white knight."

||ExplicitThe League||When you play basketball in the NBA's minor league – it's called the D-League — the stands aren't full, the schedule is grueling, and the pay can be as low as $13,000 a year. Compare that to the NBA, where the profile is high and the salary is way higher. Playing in the D-League is a moonshot for every player, just waiting to get that call-up to the NBA. We follow two players through the highs and lows of an entire D-League season. You can follow Kelly McEvers on Twitter @KellyMcEvers, Uri Berliner @uberliner and Tom Goldman @TomGoldmanNPR.

We embed with both the police and the locals after the police shot and killed an unarmed black man. And we see what police tactics, from glad-handing to tough love, look like up close.

||ExplicitThe Capital||El Salvador is the murder capital of the world, by many estimates. It has the highest homicide rate anywhere outside of war zones. The reason?

The best of the best.
This is by far my favourite podcast. Embedded represents the premium in broadcast journalism going behind the top stories with exhaustive research and finding out what the real back story is. I’d put it neck it neck with the Daily, another amazing podcast. It would be worth your while to go back through all of them and give them a listen. They are just so good!
I'm not a reliable listener, but every episode I hear is just mesmerizing. A great blend of storytelling and extrememly informative investigative journalism.
Love this podcast
Totally hooked. Love the stories and story telling.
