Hosted by Kelly McEvers, Embedded takes a story from the news and goes deep. What does it feel like for a father in El Salvador to lie to his daughter about the bodies he saw in the street that day? What does it feel like for a nurse from rural Indiana to shoot up a powerful prescription opioid? Embedded (EMBD) takes you to where they're happening.

Customer Reviews

Podcast fan

Very well produced. Riveting!

Great podcast!

I found this podcast when I was looking for something similar to Serial. It's awesome - though I wish the episodes were even longer. I really admire Kelly McEvers for her bravery in reporting. She does a great job.

More, please!

Embedded takes 'driveway moments' to new heights! I would love to hear more and/or longer episodes. If you're a fan of This American Life or Serial, Embedded is similar.
