Aug. 16, 2013: Winners and Losers, Reporters, Brian Mann, coal plants
August 16, 2013
Aaron Short of City & State shares this week’s Winners & Losers.
Our Reporter Roundtable features AP Albany Capitol Editor Michael Gormley and North Country Public Radio and NPR contributor Brian Mann. The two will discuss issues including Stop and Frisk; real estate and campaign fundraising; the Moreland Commission; APA land classification and prison closures.
Mann’s latest project with NCPR is “Prison Time: 40 Years of the Rockefeller Drug Laws,” charting their impact and the “culture of mass incarceration” they helped foster. It’s an important story to tell, but investigative journalism is expensive, so NCPR has launched a Kickstarter campaign site to help fund the project: www.kickstarter.com/projects/476455248/prison-time.◄ Back to PodCasts
