In response to our recent listener survey, West Virginia Public Broadcasting (WVPB) is excited to broadcast several new voices (and programs) on our statewide radio service, our live stream and our WVPB mobile app

Recently, The Center for Investigative Reporting's 'Reveal' released an episode called 'Do Not Drink: The Water Crisis in Flint, Michigan.' The producers of the show then wondered about water crises elsewhere and how communities reacted. The January 2014 Elk River chemical spill came to mind and they asked me to contribute some insight into the event and what's happened since.

This week on our new investigative journalism show, "Reveal," we learn about the abuse of heroin, immigrant farmworkers, and teen prisoners and animals, including:

- An investigation by WBEZ/Chicago and The Chicago Reader explores the path heroin takes from Ciudad Juarez to Chicago and across the Midwest, where it supplies dealers, addicts and teens.

- A look at the solitary confinement of teens, many of whom are unconvicted, at Rikers Island in NYC.
