  6. What happens when ISIS attacks your team’s aid delivery truck in the middle of the Iraq desert? And what do you do when, that same night, another aid vehicle bringing basic necessities to desperate people, gets shot at in the middle of a US airstrike—mistaken for the very ISIS fighters attacking your team? Travel with us back to 2016 to experience a pivotal turning point in our organization’s history. Experience a night in Iraq that made us press into pain. A night we’ll never forget. A night that changed...well, everything. Hear from members of our team who nearly lost their lives. Hear about us frantically tweeting coordinates to the US military, trying to get them to stop the bombing. But most of all, hear about how, even in the face of death, and in one case, even coming face-to-face with ISIS, we chose to love anyway. Learn more here.
  7. It’s not easy being an undercover cop in a county of just 40,000 people. But drugs were making it hard for Bucky Culbertson to run his business, so he made it his business to get rid of drugs.
  8. In this edition of Counter Stories, the team looks at why people struggle to pronounce unfamiliar names. Getting a name wrong seems innocuous, but when the name of someone with non-European ancestry is "dumbed down" for a white speaker or mispronounced repeatedly, it can have a lasting impact. The Counter Stories hosts for this episode are: Don Eubanks, associate professor at Metropolitan State University and cultural consultant Anthony Galloway, executive director of Arts Us Hlee Lee, owner of "the other media group" Luz Maria Frias, lawyer and consultant Marianne Combs, arts reporter for MPR News
  9. When Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s ascendance to the Supreme Court threw the future of abortion rights into question, states scrambled to enact new laws. Two neighboring states in the Midwest are moving in opposite directions: Missouri is taking action to end abortion access, while Illinois is trying to preserve it. In a two-part series, we explore what those changes look like on the ground.Guests: Sabrina Tavernise, a national correspondent for The New York Times, and Lynsea Garrison, a producer for “The Daily.” For more information on today’s episode, visit coverage:Anti-abortion activists are pursuing what they see as their best chance in years to restrict abortion access with a Supreme Court they believe to be in their favor.Listen to “Roe v. Wade,” a series from “The Daily” about how abortion became one of the most divisive political issues in the United States.
  10. Four states have passed laws this year that effectively ban abortion after six weeks of pregnancy, and others, including Missouri, are expected to follow suit. Some Missourians are crossing the state line to Illinois, where abortion access is protected. We spent a day at a clinic in Illinois with three women who were getting abortions. Guests: Sabrina Tavernise, a national correspondent for The New York Times, and Lynsea Garrison, a producer for “The Daily.” For more information on today’s episode, visit episode includes disturbing language.Background coverage:Bans on abortion in the very early weeks of pregnancy — after a fetal heartbeat is detected — used to be rare. But in the past three months, four states have passed so-called heartbeat bills, and 11 others are considering them. In 1973, the Supreme Court ruled — with little controversy — that women had a constitutional right to abortion. How did the decision give way to today’s deep political divide? Listen to a series from “The Daily” on Roe v. Wade.

  3. America has a drug addiction crisis. Recovery could take decades. Opioid addiction has hit Appalachia harder than any region in the nation. This episode, Trey talks to Caitlin Esch, a reporter for The Uncertain Hour podcast produced by APM’s Marketplace. Caitlin has spent years tracking the challenges of the drug epidemic in Wise County, VA, where opioid addiction, and now methamphetamine and cocaine abuse takes lives and devastates families.
  4. Phoebe breaks it all the way down with sports journalist/writer Jemele Hill (The Atlantic, ESPN).  Jemele talks about her infamous tweet calling President Trump a  “white supremacist,” and the controversy that followed, what it’s like practicing “journalism while black,” and her biggest faux pas from when she was starting out in the industry. Plus, Phoebe tries to teach Joanie Mitch about tennis (it doesn’t go very well).
