Every Friday, governments and businesses offload announcements they don't want much press coverage for. These are called "news dumps." Journalist Yael Grauer and producer Trevor Hultner are dedicated to illuminating these news dumps for you. Each episode, they'll interview experts and activists about topics that were supposed to be buried by the weekend, and bring it to you fresh. It's the Monday Morning Dumpster Dive!
