"Reveal" is an investigative program from the Center for Investigative Reporting and PRX. We’ve heard the news, but we want to know what really happened. That’s what "Reveal" is all about: finding out what’s going on behind the scenes, hidden from public view. Hosted by Al Letson, former host of WJCT's State of the Re:Union.
